Reporting to Parents

Reporting fosters partnerships between parents, students and teachers, as well as providing a formal record of each student’s learning progress and achievement.

At St Francis of Assisi Primary School, reporting is the process of communicating the knowledge and understanding gained from assessing student learning. The key purpose of reporting is to support student learning by providing information to students and parents or carers about student achievement and progress and to indicate areas for further development.

At St Francis of Assisi Primary School, we afford every possible opportunity to parents to talk to teachers about their child’s progress; however, we do have a formal reporting schedule that is adhered to every year.
