Assessment and reporting of Student Progress

At Torrens Primary School we provide regular, accurate and comprehensive information about a student’s intellectual, social and personal development and indicate areas for further development.

Written reports regarding student progress include an A-E achievement grading (not for Preschool or Kindergarten) as required by the Government Schools Education Committee (GSEC). Kindergarten students receive the PIPS (Performance Indicators in Primary School) Report twice a year instead of the A-E reporting.

From 2018 students across the school and preschools have been able to access their class activities and other communication via the Seesaw App. Instead of waiting for a portfolio at the end of the year to see what your children are learning about, you get this in real time. Seesaw is also great for initiating conversations with children about their day when they come home from school.

Termly reporting at Torrens is summarised in the table below, but if you are concerned about your child’s progress at any time during the year, please make an appointment to meet with their teacher.
