Mr. Hickman has emailed parents with details of ‘Baseline Assessments’ for children in Year 2 to Year 6. These are something that we have carried out for the past 5 years at NAIS Manila and the children are comfortable with.
The GL Baselines are not a pass/fail assessment or a way of producing a percentage for attainment. The Baselines are an important way to ensure that children make excellent individual academic progress and teachers are able to tailor their curriculum to meet to unique needs of individual children.
Additional Parent Teacher Consultations (PTC) for 20/21
As parents, we understand that excellent academic progress can look very different in individual children. To keep you updated about your child’s progress, to discuss how your child has settled in and review the Baseline Assessments, all parents will be invited to an additional PTC this year. These meetings will take place over a two-week period starting on Monday 14th September. Class teachers will contact parents directly about this nearer to the time and following the completion of our baseline assessments.
Although it may be very early in the Academic Year, there is a lot of good work going on and it is great to see the updates to Virtual Schooling for the 20/21 Academic Year starting to have an impact on learning!
