Assessment and reporting

Our teachers use a variety of strategies to assess student learning. These include observing work in class and looking closely at tasks throughout the year.

Twice a year, teachers formally assess a student’s achievement based on the outcomes described in the syllabus of each subject. A written report using the common grade scale is sent home in the first half of the year, usually near the end of Term 2, and again in Term 4. This gives a clear picture of your child’s learning.


We provide detailed information to students about what we expect from them throughout the year and how their work will be assessed. Students have a number of formal assessments throughout their schooling.

  • Check-in assessment 
  • PLAN2
  • PAT: we use assessment PAT assessment data to identify starting points for learning, target teaching and monitor growth in maths and reading.
  • Essential assessment: this helps assess students confidently and accurately to measure achievement and growth against not only the outcomes, organisers and indicators of the new NSW Syllabus K-10 while aligning data to the Numeracy and Literacy progressions. 
  • Some students may elect to sit the opportunity class or selective high school placement tests. For more information, visit selective high schools and opportunity classes.
  • K-12 curriculum and report guide
  • Personalised reporting scale: Personalised Reporting Scale: A personalised reporting scale is used for students who have a confirmed disability and are not accessing the same stage outcomes and related content as their peers. These students would be working towards identified individualised goals across each KLA. A personalised reporting scale is used to report on student progress. Achievements are based on individual learning priorities (Personalised Learning & Support Plans as well as Individual Learning/Education programs) and measured against the following scale: P4 - Independent, P3 - Frequent, P2 - Occasional, P1 - Beginning.
