Assessment & Reporting

 

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess each student's work. This includes observing their work in class and looking closely at the work they produce throughout the year.

 

Twice a year teachers also assess each primary school student'sachievements based on the outcomes described in the NSW primary curriculum foundation statements.

 

A written report using the grade scale is sent home usually near the end of Term 2 and Term 4, to give you a clear picture of your child's achievements.

 

Students have a number of assessments in primary school:

  • Best start Kindergarten assessments in literacy and numeracy - helps our teachers to identify the learning needs of your child.

  • National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) - assesses students' skills in numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. All students in Years 3 and 5 sit for four tests in May.

    NAPLAN results help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a detailed written report of your child's achievement in the tests.

 

Optional assessments:

 

Parent - teacher meetings

You will be given a formal opportunity to discuss your child's progress at a parent-teacher meeting. However, if you have any concerns, don't wait for a parent-teacher meeting. Please make an appointment to discuss these concerns as they arise with the relevant teacher.
