Programming, Assessment & Reporting
The class teacher develops an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for each child, in collaboration with parents, carers, therapists and other relevant people. It becomes the basis of the educational program to meet the needs of each student. ILPs are developed using the Cranleigh Teaching and Learning Cycle as a guide.
The ILP and the teaching program are based on the school curriculum which is organised into four domains
- Self/Home Management
- In Community
Communication, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are taught across all domain areas. Learning through play is a focus in Early Childhood classes.
ILP goals are reviewed throughout the year. Every child has an annual formal In School Review. At this meeting we discuss the progress of the student in meeting ILP goals and plan for the future. Parent/carer input is a vital element in the review process.
At the end of semester one and at the end of the year a report, which addresses each child's performance in relation to the ILP goals is distributed to families. In addition, at the end of the year, parents of students in kindergarten, years 2, 4 and 6 also receive a digital portfolio highlighting their child's achievements throughout the year. Parents and carers are also kept informed via class letters, term overviews and programs sent home once a term and on a daily basis via a communication or chat book, emails or phone calls. This communication process also assists families to discuss and share the school day with their child.
