Assessment and reporting
Assessment is an important part of the teaching and learning cycle.
Assessment is one of the ways that teachers and therapists get to know your child. It helps us (teachers, therapists and family/whanau) to make decisions about what programmes and resources to choose.
Assessment also helps us keep track of your child's learning over time. We use a wide range of assessments at Arohanui and the information is shared with you at the PLP meeting.
Reporting to Families
Family Meeting/Learning Partnership: At the Family Meeting you will meet with the teacher and key therapist. Your child may attend part of this meeting. You are welcome to bring someone with you.
Together we will develop your child’s Personal Learning Plan from the Class
Learning Plan: We will talk about what you think is really important for your child to learn, and anything you feel is missing so we can add this to the plan. We will them talk about how we can help your child to progress in their learning. We would like to hear your ideas on how they learn best and what he/she likes learning about.
We will also be sharing your child’s work and achievements via Seesaw, an app available for you to download on your electronic devices.
Personal Learning Plan (PLP): After the family meeting, teacher and therapists develop your child’s Personal Learning Plan and Therapy Plan. This will be sent home to you. The teacher is already teaching the goals in the Class Learning Plan but they will make some adjustments to make sure they are covering what you think is really important. They will let you know how your child is progressing and you can share how they are going at home via Seesaw, the home-school notebook or via email.
