The Middle School reports your son’s academic progress with Continuous Reporting. This type of reporting refers to providing timely, quality feedback comments for all summative assessments through Seqta Engage. Comments focus on strengths and areas that need improvement in relation to the related criteria for that assessment.
This is complemented by Semester 1 and 2 reports, and student, parent, and teacher interviews. Information in semester reports is based on the expectations of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and the Western Australian Curriculum.
Parent Teacher Student Interviews
In Semester 1, the Parent and Teacher interviews for Years 6, 7 and 8 have a pastoral care focus. We aim to answer the question, ‘How is my son settling into the year?’.
Following Semester 1 reporting, the boys spend time in class analysing their reports and formulating goals and strategies for the coming semester. All families in Years 6, 7 and 8 are then invited to attend Student Led Goal Setting Conferences with the homeroom teacher, where your son will share the goals he has committed to for second semester.
The assessment schedules for Years 6, 7 and 8 can be found here. Please note that given dates are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances and you should refer to Seqta Engage for the exact dates of upcoming assessments.
