Reporting to Parents
The key contributors to positive learning classrooms are teachers, students, parents, caregivers and whānau. At Peachgrove we want to maintain close dialogue, share information, and work together to build respectful and trusting relationships, so that our students can be fully supported in their learning at and beyond school.
Parents, caregivers and whānau are welcome to come in to school to talk with school adults about the progress of their children. We value our parents, caregivers and whānau as the first teachers of their children and want to listen to their stories.
Two set dates are provided during the year for booked fifteen minute learning conversations between teachers, students, parents, caregivers and whānau. Information is sent home in hardcopy and online. At these meetings we share and understand information and insights about children’s progress and achievement. Teachers also focus on describing and supporting what learning and progress has occurred.
Current practice is to also provide formal written reports about each student twice a year; in July and December. We report in plain language; aiming to keep parents, caregivers and whānau well informed in making sense of their child’s progress and achievement, and more able to support learning at home.
Additional learning records are also available via classroom online forums (safely accessible to individuals) or in exercise books or presentations kept in the classrooms. Please contact your child’s teacher if you wish to access or talk further about any learning records related to your child’s learning progress.
