Dear parents and carers
Once again, I want to thank you again for your support throughout what has been a memorable start to the school year. It has resulted in a very unusual school semester, full of twists and turns and presenting us with extraordinary challenges in managing schooling during the first half of 2020. I truly believe that at Beaconsfield Primary School, the strong connections between the school and our community ensured we have made best of this situation. The evidence of this can be seen in the prioritisation of our students’ safety and a focus on the continuity of learning.
With the regular attendance of some students being lower over this time, the breadth and depth of the curriculum covered throughout Semester 1 may have been reduced. For this reason, schools were not required to include A to E grades on this year’s Semester 1 student reports. It also means that your child’s attendance will not be reported, and any written comments may provide less information on their progress than usual.
Schooling is once again returning to normal and our students are engaging in the regular curriculum, in their usual classroom environment. Those approved to learn from home are also being supported. Semester 2 reports will reflect this and therefore provide the usual, more detailed information on your child’s progress and achievement.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement as we work together to provide the best learning opportunities for our students.
Reports will be released via Connect prior to the end of term. If you have any specific queries regarding your child’s report, please make contact with the classroom teacher.
On behalf of the staff at Beaconsfield Primary School, I wish you a safe and restful holiday.
