At Snells Beach School, we are proud of our Student Achievement against the expected curriculum level, with results far above the national average. We run a range of support programmes, and believe in student centered inquiry, where learners take ownership.
See below for our 2018 End of Year Achievement data & accompanying graphs for comparison, in Reading, Writing and Maths.
Early during Term 1, we host a social Meet and Greet down at Snells Beach Reserve. This is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to meet with teachers in an informal situation. In order to do OUR job as well as we can, we need YOUR help. Research tells us that children develop best when they are involved in, and surrounded by strong relationships. The relationship between home and school is critical. Parents and Caregivers will be given a “Homework Sheet” to complete, telling us all about their child. This is also a wonderful opportunity for new families to meet each other, and to make connections within our community.
Towards the end of Term One, we host a Goal Setting Afternoon. Parents are invited to drop into their child’s classroom, where the children will share their learning goals, and what they are working on in class. This is a child-led afternoon, although teachers will be on-hand to answer any questions you may have. All goals are also sent home on paper, as a reminder, or for parents who can’t attend.
Near the end of Term 2, teachers will provide a written report for each student, detailing their individual progress against the expected curriculum levels in Reading, Writing and Maths. Parent/Teacher Interviews immediately follow this report, where you can discuss your child’s achievement in further detail, and how you can help at home.
Finally, during Term 4 teachers will provide a written report for each student, detailing their individual progress towards achieving the National Standards in Reading, Writing and Maths.
