Assessment & Reporting

Communicating Student Learning and Growth

At Ranfurly Primary School, the learning and growth of all students is collaborative, valued and communicated to enable a shared responsibility between home and school. Every student is empowered by opportunities to maximise their potential, recognising and promoting individual learning and growth. 
Communication of student learning and growth at Ranfurly Primary School is transparent, collaborative, relevant and reflective. We conduct:
  • Meet the Teacher/ Open Classrooms in February (with a family b.b.q. to follow)
  • Goal Setting Meetings in March
  • Student-Led Conferences in August
The purpose of the above meetings is for the exchange of information between students, parents and teachers. Parents are encouraged to discuss any concerns with teachers, when they arise, not wait for scheduled meetings. Teachers work in partnership with parents and are proactive in communicating with parents if there are concerns. 
Our school has implemented a continuous reporting model and parents receive Learning Tasks (via Compass) at least six times a term (that also includes Specialist subjects). Our Student Progress Reports our sent home at the end of Semester One (June) and at the end of Semester Two (December).

Ranfurly Primary has a commitment to structured, purposeful inquiry that engages students actively in their own learning. Inquiry in the broadest sense is the process initiated by the students or the teacher that moves students from their current level of understanding to a new and deeper level of understanding. Inquiry allows students understanding of the world to develop in a manner and at a rate that is unique to that student. Students are supported to make meaning from the world around them by drawing on prior knowledge, by providing new experiences and by providing time and opportunity for reflection and consolidation.
