  5. 5. Queen of Peace Primary School AT QOP WE WANT TO: ● Have greater transparency and clarity around reporting and the connection to Learning and Teaching at QoP ● To give parents and caregivers more information about their children’s learning growth ● To give parents reports that are more accessible and easier to read Why the change to reports?
  6. 6. Queen of Peace Primary School ● At QoP, a formal report is issued twice a year in June and December ● 3 Way Learning Conversations take place in February and June, in June these conversations give parents and caregivers an opportunity to ask questions about their child’s learning progress ● Portfolios support the written report and provide examples of the learning that has occurred during the semester Reporting Process
  7. 7. Queen of Peace Primary School ● Is a written description in the Victorian Curriculum of the understanding and skills typically expected of children as they progress through school What is an achievement standard? ● Year 1 Achievement Standard for Reading and Viewing
  8. 8. Queen of Peace Primary School ● The sequence of achievement standards in the Victorian Curriculum describes ○ The progress in the learning area ○ The depth of understanding, extent of knowledge, level of skill expected ● There is one achievement standard per level or band (eg. Year 3 & 4) depending on the Learning Area ● Assists teachers to plan and monitor for learning and to make judgements about the children’s progress Achievement Standards
  9. 9. Queen of Peace Primary School ● The reports will now contain tables to reflect the children’s progress against the standards ● There will be: ○ A table for each strand in English ie: Reading and Viewing, Writing, Listening and Speaking ○ A table for each strand in Mathematics ie: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, Statistics and Probability ○ A table for Faith Life Inquiry units and Specialist Learning Areas Report Format
  10. 10. Queen of Peace Primary School ● This means: ○ The tables will communicate children’s progress instead of the “What your child has achieved” comment in the Learning Areas ○ In Religious Education and Faith Life Inquiry there will be a comment celebrating your child’s learning. ○ There will continue to be an overall comment for “Future Learning” in both English and Mathematics Report Format
  11. 11. Queen of Peace Primary School ● The tables were created from the Standards ● Each standard was broken up into assessment criteria statements and, if necessary, slightly reworded for greater clarity ● Example: Year 2 Writing How were the tables created?

  21. 21. Queen of Peace Primary School ● The Victorian Curriculum Standards describe the expected student achievement after being taught the curriculum for the whole school year or in the case of bands, the whole 2 years ● The checklist reflects student progress toward the end of year Achievement Standards ● Semester 1 report reflects the level to which a student is “on track” in achieving the standard At this time of year

  23. 23. Correlation of QoP Table and 5 Point Scale If a dot is in the left hand side of the “At Standard” column we at QoP are saying they are “Approaching the Standard and not yet “At Standard” *QoP can not change this
  24. 24. Queen of Peace Primary School ● All Victorian schools use the same reporting dot page which begins halfway through prep ● There is no provision to show that a prep child in June is working below the standard expected in June ● QoP have created a table that will be used in June to show where a prep child is working ● In December the Preps will receive the dot page Victorian Curriculum for Prep (Dot Page)
  25. 25. Queen of Peace Primary School Specialists Learning Area How is the Learning Area structured? Physical Education Prep, 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 Music Prep, 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 Visual Arts Prep, 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 Italian Prep-2, 3&4, 5&6 Library Prep, 1, 2 (Comes from English Curriculum which is in levels)
  26. 26. Queen of Peace Primary School ● The time allocation for specialist learning areas is 1 hour per week, approximately 10 hours per term ● This time is often impacted significantly because of public holidays, planning days, sports days, school masses etc ● The tables in the report for these Learning Areas reflect the content from the Standards that can be reasonably taught in this timeframe Specialists
