The purpose of reporting is to share progress and achievement made throughout the school year.
Achievement reports are sent home in Term 2 and Term 4. These reports reflect student progress and learning in Reading, Writing and Maths as well as shared key understandings taught through Science, Social Sciences, the Arts, Te Reo Māori, Technology, Physical Education and Health. In line with our annual strategic plan we also report on our school values and how your child demonstrates these core life values in their daily interactions within the school environment. We report on Manaakitanga and Whanaungatanga in Term 2 and Rangitiratanga and Kaitikitanga in Term 4.
Students are assessed throughout and upon completion of learning in a particular area and receive a level for their work based on the national curriculum objectives. There are eight best fit levels from 1 to 8. It is not expected that all students of the same age will be achieving at the same level at the same time.
At Woodlands Park School, student achievement is levelled against the National Curriculum. Our strategic goal is for students to make 1-2 sub levels progress per year (1 sub level progress is the expected, 2 sub levels indicates accelerated learning). The focus is on progress made.
