Assessment and Reporting

The assessment of a student’s progress is fundamental to Peter’s Catholic Primary School’s vision for learning.

Assessment is both formative (informing our teaching) and summative (a summary of how student learning is progressing).

Students are assessed at a number of points throughout their time at school and in each school year. Student feedback is most effective when it is timely, relevant, encouraging and offers suggestions for improvement.

We conduct three way learning conversations with parents, teachers and the student (interviews) in February and June and written reports are provided in June and December. These written reports are based on the Victorian Curriculum which outlines what is essential for all Victorian students to learn during their time at school.
