Reading Your Child’s Report by Michael Grose
Each Semester at the end of Term 2 and Term 4 Student Reports are sent home.
Here at St Emilie’s we aim to help children to understand that reports are neither something to be feared …
or something to get overly excited about …
We explain to children that the report certainly gives some valuable information about their learning progress however we also reinforce that this isn’t ‘the whole picture’ and that learning improvement takes ongoing time, persistence, patience, practise, a positive attitude, effort and more!
Parents are asked to read the Michael Grose article above as it has some pearls of wisdom about keeping school reports in perspective and some advice as to how to support your child when it comes to report reading time.
We ask that you also read the note below which simply explains the newest version of the A-E GRADE DESCRIPTORS for all primary schools in WA.
