Formal Learning Conversations or Interviews are an important element of our reporting process and build on partnerships with teachers, students and families to ensure successful learning. These conversations are occurring in all classes beginning next week. We invite all Parents and Caregivers to participate in these Learning Conversations.
Interviews are about sharing information and strategies rather than just giving information. They are about understanding students’ strengths and weaknesses, setting goals and seeking a team approach to building learning success. Our mission is to create more opportunities for all students to develop the skills and dispositions to put their most focussed energy into their learning. As they get older, students are expected to more clearly articulate their learning needs and commitment to improvement.
The next formal phase of our report process will be written reports at the end of term 2.
Our students who require adjustments for learning due to learning difficulties or disabilities all have individual learning plans. Teachers will be reviewing these plans with families before the end of term. These conversations may occur during the regular Learning Conversation or another meeting may be scheduled for this review. Identified students with disabilities who have a Negotiated Education Plan (NEP) will have official NEP review meetings, as we have done in the past, scheduled in week 2 next term (6-10 May)
Please note that Interviews will be booked online once again this year.
