Reporting to Parents

Opportunities

In the second week of school there is an opportunity to meet in the School Hall for consultation around the direction of the school year. Immediately following this there is a Meet the Teacher evening in the children’s classroom. This is repeated so that you can visit two children’s classrooms.

Goal Setting

We invite parents, child and teacher to have a three way interview about setting children’s learning, social and behavioural goals in early April (term one). Children’s goals are monitored and a formal goal setting review is completed in August.

Written Reports

New Entrant children receive a six week report following the child starting school. Children in their first three years of school receive an anniversary report. This monitors their progress after 40 weeks (1 year), 80 weeks (2 years) & 120 weeks (3 years) at school. Children will receive a written report at mid and end of the year. It is our aim to write these in plain English with comment and results measuring them against the set National Standards.

Interviews With Staff

There are many occasions when parents wish to approach staff members for information about a child's progress or school activities. Please phone the office, or contact staff directly and arrange an appointment to ensure the person is available. Staff members welcome any enquiries and appreciate parents' concern and help around the school. Please feel free to approach the school at any time over any matter.
