How we communicate information about assessment
Reporting on assessment at Galatea School includes communicating what students know, understand and can do, as well as covering the progress that each child has made.
Reporting to Galatea School parents occurs through:
Progress and Achievement Reports:
Our Progress and Achievement reports provide a snapshot of your child’s learning in relation to our curriculum areas, the Key Competencies and our school Core Values.
These written reports will celebrate the individual progress that your child is making in all of the above areas and will give an indication of what their next learning steps are.
These reports are provided twice a year. For our Year 4-8 students that will be at the end of Term two and four.
For our Year 0-3 students that will be at six monthly intervals from the time they begin school.
Parent/Caregiver Meetings with the Teacher (10 mins)
In Term one there is an opportunity for parents/caregivers and teachers to meet. The teacher will discuss with the parent/caregivers aspects such as how well their child has settled into the class and the Key Competencies that they display, such as managing themselves, relating to others or contributing and participating.
This report is not academic in nature.
Student Led Learning Conferences
As part of the ongoing reporting process for the year, teachers and students are very excited to invite you and your child to participate in a Student Led Learning Conference. The Student Led Learning Conference is 20 minutes long and takes place in your child’s classroom.
The children conduct the conference themselves while the teacher is present in a supportive and encouraging role. I am sure you will be proud of your children as they give an insight into their learning journey.
L & P Meetings
These meetings are held between the teacher and whanau. They are held early in terms two and term four. Their purpose is to highlight the learning and progress made to date by the child and to establish what support from home could add further value.
