Report cards are sent out twice a year. They are in a common format with Government schools across the state. Written in plain English they give parents a clear picture of their child's progress against expected state-wide standards.
The report cards aim to involve all teachers, students and parents in the reporting process. On the last page of your child’s report there is a space for you to write comments. After reading the report, please add any comments you may have on your child’s progress, and return the page to the school.
Reporting Scale: A-E
The A-E scale, linked to the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS), will tell you how your child is progressing against the expected standard. For example, a ‘C’ rating means your child is at the expected standard and that his or her learning is on track. The reporting scale has the following consistent meanings across the state:
- A – well above the expected standard at this time of year
- B – above the standard expected at this time of year
- C – at the standard expected at this time of year
- D – below the standard expected at this time of year
- E – well below the standard expected at this time of year
The report card charts your child's progress from the previous year to the current year. You will be able to see how your child progresses at school over a twelve-month period.

Along with the Report cards, you are offered to attend an interview to discuss your child's progress. This gives you the opportunity to meet your child's teacher/s and become more involved in your child's learning – providing support where needed.
