Assessment & Reporting


Although the words assessment and evaluation are often used interchangeably, they each have a specific meaning and a different purpose. Whilst evaluation is concerned with the whole of the education process, assessment attempts to measure children's performance and achievement.

The key features of our assessment policy are as follows:

  • assessment is continuous and is based on a variety of assessment techniques rather than one-off end of semester assessments
  • assessment focuses on the child's demonstration of learning
  • teachers collect student work samples throughout the year to support their reporting
  • the information gathered is accessible to parents throughout the year by arrangement with the teacher.

Reporting Program:

The reporting timeline consists of the following measures:​


  • There will be a Parent information Evening in the first four weeks of Term 1.

  •  Parent Teacher Interviews: An invitation to meet all parents individually with the teacher will also occur in term 1.  


  • A formal report will be sent home with each child during the last weeks of term.


  • A Celebration of Learning will occur in either Term 2 or Term 3. This is an afternoon where all parents are invited to come to the classroom and view their child's work in an open setting.


  • Parent swill be offered an opportunity to meet their teacher to dusicc their child's progress.

  • A formal written report will be sent home with each child during the last week of term.
