Reporting informs parents/carers of progress in learning and achievement. This will be through a range of approaches including meetings at parents’ evenings or in written form. We hold 2 formal “parents evenings” for parents to make an appointment for a private 1:1 discussion with their child’s teacher. In the ELC Unit, these are Stay and Play sessions. Written reports are issued in the summer term. We have an “open door” policy and parents are encouraged to speak regularly with their child’s teacher to raise any concerns they may have.
Parents will get regular information about their children’s strengths, progress and achievements. This will take account of their achievements in key areas of learning such as literacy and numeracy and in different contexts and settings including across curriculum areas, the life and ethos of the school, and learning outwith the school, including the wider community. At key points this will include information on the curriculum level children are working within and progress towards qualifications in the senior phase. Parents will be informed of what their children need to do to continue making progress and ways that they can help.
At P7 and S3, teachers will work with children and young people to prepare profiles which will highlight their achievements over a period of time and summarise their learning journey at key points of transition.
