Reporting to Parents

We strive to be an inclusive community and warmly welcome parents and whanau to share their child’s ‘learning journey’.  We believe the partnership between home and school is critical to children’s progress and achievement. We make every effort to inform you in a timely and accurate manner as to how your child is progressing and achieving at school.  All student reports include a general comment from the teacher about your child’s participation at school.  Students also self assess against a range of competencies for learning.


Goal Setting Conferences: Term 1


All students from Year 1 to Year 8 participate in setting goals in partnership with their teacher and parents/whanau. 


Reporting to Parents For Students After Their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Year at School


In the early years it is essential we provide rigorous and accurate reporting of your child’s progress and achievement levels in the key curriculum areas of Literacy and Mathematics.


In the first three years of schooling students are assessed and reported on for their achievement in Reading, Writing and Numeracy at the end of the school term in which they turn 6, 7 or 8 years of age. They are assessed and reported on their progress towards these expected levels at the end of the term that they turn 5 ½, 6 ½ or 7 ½  years old.  


At the end of the school term your child has either their progress or achievement, mile-stone, a written report will be provided and a Learning Partnership Conference scheduled.
