Assessment and Reporting

As part of accountability requirements, regular reporting to parents and carers and providing feedback on student progress is an important, non-negotiable requirement of our school. A variety of methods are utilised each term to keep parents and carers informed about their child’s progress.

Reporting to Parents

Parents and carers receive formal reports twice a year at the end of Terms 2 and 4. These reports comply with Department of Education requirements to:


  • give an accurate and objective assessment of your child’s progress and achievement.
  • include an assessment of your child’s achievement reported as an ABCDE scale, clearly defined against specific learning standards and relative to your child’s peer group.

These reports are emailed to parents in the last week of Terms 2 and 4.

Learning Journey

During Term 3, students in Kindergarten to Year 6, along with their family and friends who are interested in their learning, share their learning experiences of their choice with people who are important in their lives.

Our school and classrooms are opened and as you walk around the school, you will find students showcasing projects and demonstrating how they learn. It is not uncommon to see parents participating in learning activities and seeing learning through the eyes of their children.

Progress Packs

Progress Packs are one of our valuable reporting tools that complement Learning Journeys and Reporting to Parents. Progress Packs are a portfolio of student work samples and reflections that provide all stakeholders with information and feedback about their child’s progress and achievement in relation to expected standards of performance. They provide opportunities for students to participate in the assessment process through action and reflection and explicit assessment criteria that is known to students prior to the task. Progress Packs reflect the development of the student and provide valuable feedback about learning growth to all stakeholders.

On Entry Assessment

Students in Pre-Primary to Year 2 participate in On-Entry Assessment during Weeks 3-6 of Term 1. This program aims to provide teachers with information about the skills and understandings that a child brings to school each year. This understanding assists in the planning and development of targeted learning programs that address the needs of each individual and identify children who may require early intervention or extension. It assesses the literacy and numeracy skills and understandings considered critical to early and ongoing educational development. For more information please click here.


The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. For more information please click here.
