Our Student-led Conferences are usually held the week following the written report being sent home. This is usually the last week of Term One and Three.

The Student-led Conference purpose is to provide our students with an opportunity to share their learning with their parents, bring their parents into their learning space where they feels comfortable and ready to share. Teachers are available to support the student and provide further detail to the information being shared by the child and the written report.

How the Student-Led Conference looks…

  • Each student has up to 45 minutes to share (though if longer is required this is OK)
  • There will be up to 5 students and their family/whanau for each teacher in the learning space at a time
  • Teacher will ‘check in’ with student and parent on several occasions
  • The conference is about sharing learning and achievement.
  • To discuss social issues we suggest another appointment is made.
  • Students will share their learning recorded in a variety of ways so parents can see progress
  • Teachers will to have recent testing available and share with parents, RR, e-asTTle, PAT, samples etc
