Reporting to Parents
Our school reports to parents in two ways.
At the beginning of the year, a 5-week summary is sent home, indicating how your child is settling into the school year.
Towards the end of Term 2, a mid-year report will be issued. It will be a summary of your child’s progress and achievements for the first six months of the year. Your child’s progress is based on the NZ curriculum levels. There will be next steps for numeracy and literacy included in this report. These indicate how you can help your child at home.
An end-of-year report will be issued in the last week of the year. It will be a summary of your child’s progress and achievements for the year. Your child’s progress is based on the NZ curriculum levels.
After approximately six weeks of school, meet the teacher conversations will be held. This is an opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and inform them about your child. This could include information about your child’s health and home situation, sharing your child’s strengths and discussing any concerns with the teacher.
These conversations are triadic, which means that your child takes an active role. Goals are set with your child to focus on during the first six months of the year. These are constructed by the child, teacher and parent.
At the end of Term 2, triadic conversations are held after the reports are sent home. Again these involve teacher, parents and children. The reports are discussed and new goals are set for the next six months.
Our school has an open-door policy and parents are encouraged to talk to their child’s teacher whenever they have a concern or need something clarified. You can also contact the teacher via email.
