Schools need to plan reporting alongside assessment. They should establish efficient and manageable reporting processes and procedures. The annual report to parents should provide meaningful information about their child’s progress and achievements in all aspects of their learning.
The Purpose of Reporting
Reporting should support and improve learning. It must provide useful information to pupils and their parents. Pupils should know:
- what they have achieved;
- how they performed against expectations in each subject; and
- how much effort they made.
To encourage parents to become actively involved in their child’s learning, teachers should discuss with them what they can do for their child to:
- ensure progress;
- improve learning; and
- support them to achieve their potential.
