Reporting to Parents & Caregivers

There are several formal ways we report to you about your child’s learning at Oteha Valley School. In Year 1 the teacher will meet with you after your child has been at school for six weeks and six months, to talk to you about their learning; what they are doing well, what they need help with, what the teacher is doing to help them and what you can do at home to help them.

We are required to report on the progress of children in Years 2 - 6 in relation to the National Standards in Reading, Writing and Mathematics, in writing twice a year. We do this at the end of Terms 2 and 4.

At the end of Term 1 we invite parents/caregivers to come to a three-way conference with their child and teacher. This is where children are prepared to talk to you about aspects of their learning they are proud of and their next steps and goals.

At the end of Term 2, we have formal parent/teacher ‘interviews’ where parents can talk to the teacher about the mid-year report.

At any time during the year parents/caregivers are able to make a time to meet with the teacher to discuss their child’s learning.
