At Box Hill North Primary School, we believe in involving students, parents and teachers in the reporting process closely. Each term parents are presented with an Individual Learning Journal (ILJ) which includes samples of work, student goals, teacher comments, personal development and self-reflection pages. In addition to this, a formal student progress report against the AusVELS curriculum in June and December of each year.
The formal reporting practices of the school include:
- Parent / teacher meetings in February
- Mid year written report and three way interviews with the teacher, parents and student
- End of year report with parent/teacher interviews on request
More frequent contact with parents is facilitated if required to support the learning needs of a student. Effective communication between teachers and parents helps create effective learning experiences for students. Parents are encouraged and welcomed to discuss issues of concern with their child’s teacher, the Principal or Assistant Principal. General curriculum ideas can be shared at the Education Committee meetings.
