Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to provide an update on changes for the Semester One student reports at Pakenham Consolidated School.
The Department of Education and Training has adjusted the expectations of Student Reports for Semester One in recognition of the transition to remote and flexible learning during Term Two.
While our school has continued to deliver its teaching and learning program and monitor the achievement and progress of each student, there have been some unprecedented changes to our usual program.
At Pakenham Consolidated School, we know it is vital to involve students and their parents/carers in learning. This process includes providing reports on student learning.
Pakenham Consolidated School will provide a written report for the parent/carer of each student enrolled at the school for Semester One. The reports will include information on student achievement for each curriculum area taught, however, there are some changes from our usual Semester One reports.
Student reports for Semester One 2020 will include:
Pakenham Consolidated School will not be including teacher judgements and a five-point scale due to the unprecedented changes to our program due to COVID-19. We will report on progress at the end of the year.
If you have queries regarding your child's report, parents/carers may contact Katrina Stewart, Principal by calling the office to arrange an appropriate time to discuss this further.
Thank you for your continued support during remote and flexible learning.
