Reporting to parents

Reporting is the process of providing feedback to parents/carers and students about student progress. It is a core responsibility of teachers and a key phase of the teaching and learning cycle. The reporting process is one avenue for teachers to reflect on individual and class achievement and can provide clarity on future directions.
