Communication

School newsletters are the main means of communication between the school and home. Families are be emailed a link to a digital version of the newsletter on our Latest News page fornightly on a Thursday. We also Facebook for communication; Like Our Page to keep up to date with what’s happening at Poseidon Primary. Notes are still sent home from class, so please check with your children to ensure that all notes are handed to you when they come home.

Formal reporting to parents is carried out twice yearly. The report provides information on the student’s overall performance in relation to the classroom learning program, and informs parents of their child’s progress in relation to:

  • achievement and effort
  • variation from expected level of development where appropriate
  • personal and social development
  • values

Parent/teacher interviews are an important part of the reporting process. Parents will be advised of the times during the year when they will have the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress. Parents are encouraged to approach teachers for an interview if they wish to discuss their child’s report or portfolio.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to be regular visitors to the school. If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child’s progress, please contact your child’s teacher to arrange a mutually convenient interview time. On some occasions, teachers may initiate an interview with parents. We request that parents do not interrupt classes during lesson time. Any urgent need to see teachers can be arranged through the office. Mr Peter Blackford (Principal) or Mr Michael Wright (Associate Principal) will be happy to see parents with immediate concerns.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Front Office if you have any concerns or issues. A mutually convenient appointment time can be made to discuss the matter with the school administration or class teacher. A discussion, phone call or letter will usually clear up any queries or misunderstandings. By contacting the school in the first instance, areas of concern are hopefully able to be resolved quickly and effectively.
