Changes to “3 Way Conferences” in 2021
Lalita, Ella, Ben and Mitchell preparing for their pre-meeting reflection
An outcome of a recent review of our “3 Way Conference” procedure was a recommendation that “Students from F-2 no longer attend meetings,” as parents and staff were reporting that students at these ages were usually not ready to engage in goal setting and discussions about their learning and that their presence often distracted from parents and teachers sharing information, rather than enhancing the process.
Therefore this year parents with students in:
F-2 are invited to come without their children to the teacher / parent conference.
Yrs 3-7 will have 3 way meetings with their child as usual. (except Yr 3’s in rooms 3&4)
Yr 3 - 7 Students who are present at these conferences have an opportunity to increase their involvement in their learning and become more aware of how parents and the school can work together to support them, as all parties jointly review their progress and set goals.
Interviews will be held starting from Monday 22nd March.
