Assessment is an integral part of the Early Years Teaching and Learning Programme and feedback is continuous. Reporting on student progress includes portfolios (Seesaw), anecdotal notes, informal conversations, and more formal conferences.
We recognise the importance of maintaining our partnership with you, the parents, in order to communicate effectively regarding your individual child’s development and learning.
In order to facilitate this, during the month of October you are invited to attend an observation session here at school, during which you will have the opportunity to observe your child’s engagement in the programme and take some notes. Due to classroom space as well as distractions to the children, we request that only one parent per family attend these sessions. A parent observation checklist will be provided to help guide you in your observations.
Please sign up at your earliest convenience and contact your class teacher if you are experiencing any difficulty.
Following on from the observations, our Learning Conversations (parent/teacher conferences) will be scheduled for 16th and 19th November. Please note: there will be no classes on these days and students do not attend this conference. This is a time for parents and teachers to discuss our observations of your child’s learning and development. The sign-up sheets are linked below.
We look forward to seeing you in school soon.
