CURRICULUM - Assessment & Reporting

Reporting processes and practices are a vital part of maintaining relationships between the school and parents. Glen Huon Primary School aims to:

  • Reflect a broad range of communication strategies;
  • Provide opportunities for parents to discuss their children’s assessments with their teachers;
  • Ensure that parents are informed as soon as possible when their children are experiencing problems.


Our teachers use a variety of tools and resources to assess student achievement. Twice a year, our teachers formally assess each student’s achievements based on the outcomes described in the Australian Curriculum. A written report using the grade scale is sent home near the end of Term 2 and Term 4, to give you a clear picture of your child’s school performance. The report provides written information that clearly shows your child’s achievement in the learning areas studied in comparison to that of other children in your child’s peer group at this school.

Students have a number of assessments in primary school:

On Entry Testing

In Pre Primary, students complete On Entry Testing assessments in literacy and numeracy. This assists teachers to identify the learning needs of your child at the commencement of school year.

National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy.

NAPLAN assesses students’ skills in numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. All students in Years 3 and 5 sit these tests in May. NAPLAN results help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a detailed written report of your child’s achievement in these tests.
