& Reporting of Student Achievement
Our teachers will regularly assess
their students to see what levels they are at, what progress
they have made and what their "next steps" and learning goals
We report on a student's progress
towards their learning goals via our regular interviews and
three-way conferences (involving the teacher, student and parent/s), and in written reports at
the anniversaries of enrolment and/or at year-end.
For students Year 1 – 3,
reports are prepared and learning conferences held after the
child has been at school for 10 weeks, 6 months, 1 year, 18
months, 2 years, 30 months and after 3 years at school. We call
this "Anniversary Reporting".
students Year 4 and above,
three-way conferences are
held mid-year to share progress towards learning goals
and to work on the "next steps" in learning. Families receive a
written report, prior to this conference, that will show the
student's level of achievement against National Standards in
reading, writing and maths, as well as other areas of the
curriculum. Written reports are also sent home at the end of the

Helping At Home
for Three-Way Conferences!
Conferences are a time for you, as a parent, to help teachers do
the very best for your children. You know a lot about your
child, so if there are important things for the teacher to know,

• Ask about as
many aspects of your child’s learning as you can, including
their friendships, independence and attitude.
• Ask about how
to encourage independence and initiative.
Keep in touch! If
you are worried or concerned about any aspects of your child’s
learning, at any time, please contact us to make a time to meet.
It’s always better to talk about things before they escalate
into bigger problems.
The Education Review Office (ERO)
has produced a useful booklet called
"How is my child doing? Questions to ask at school" to help
families find out meaningful information about their child's
progress at school.
Achievement Targets (Whole School)
Each year, the school sets targets of achievement across the
school in the National Standards of reading, writing and maths.
We work hard and make an extra effort in teaching and learning
in the target area. The other learning areas are still covered.
These targets form part of our annual
Charter and the
Board of Trustees receives progress reports
throughout the year. We report on our progress to the Ministry
of Education via our Annual Report.
