Reporting to Parents
We have a comprehensive programme for regular reporting to parents.
Term 1 – Week 2. This evening is held in the first two weeks of the year and run by your child’s team leaders. The focus of this evening is for you to be able to meet your child’s class teacher and the other teachers of the team and parents from our community. The community picnic is run over two nights. On Wednesday 8 February, Ranagau, Mahi Tahi and Tainui will hold theirs. On Thursday 9 February, Kia Kaha, Aranui and Te Aroha will hold theirs. Please keep an eye on our Korero, website calendar, facebook page and daily informer for more information about the community picnic.
Term 1 – Weeks 6 – 8. You can expect an email from your child’s teacher sometime between weeks 6 and 8. The purpose of this email is to check with you on your perception of how your child has settled into their learning environment. This also gives parents an opportunity to ask questions or raise any concerns.
Unit of Inquiry Books
PYP Unit of Inquiry books go home on a regular basis. These books are a sequence of work samples which provide you with information about your child’s learning and the class programme.
Goal setting conferences are held on Thursday 2 March from 12.00 pm – 6.00 pm. School will finish at 11.30 am on that day. Information on how to book a goal setting conference will go home on Monday 13 February. These goal setting conferences are for ten minutes. Student led conferences are held in the first week of term 3. This provides an opportunity for the student, teacher and parents to meet to share and discuss achievements. Each conference is twenty minutes in duration. It is expected that the focus of these conferences will be around achievements in literacy and numeracy. Information about booking your child’s student led conference online will go home closer to the time.
Reports go home twice a year, in Term 2 and 4. These reports provide the parents and student with a summary of student growth and achievement in all curriculum areas.
