Reports serve as an important, official communication between teachers and parents; they are not a substitute for the regular, personal communication between teachers and parents which is at the heart of our approach to education – more like a record of it.
Reports come home three times a year – near the end of each term. Standardised information is given in three specific areas: Attainment (as judged against the expectations of our curriculum); Progress; and Motivation. Students who show sustained genuine motivation in their studies represent the Wellington ideal and are very likely to achieve outstanding academic success as they progress. Reports also feature detailed comments from Teachers on noteworthy aspects of the child’s work over the term.
In combination with formal Parents’ Evenings and against the background of a strong parent-teacher relationship, our reporting procedures offer clear, focused, structured and plentiful insights into a student’s learning, achievements and potential.
