A message from the primary head

Children progress at their own individual rate and it is completely normal. Their teachers know where each child is in terms of their learning. They know what has been learnt and what remains to be learnt and adapts their teaching to reflect it. They also prepare for the back-to-school period based on the progress children have made in the previous year.

It is also important for students, and parents, to know how children are doing. So, next Monday the report cards for term 3 will be available on TESmile for CP-CM2* along with the 2nd semester of reports for PS and MS, and the end of infant school summary for GS. You can review them together at home and talk to your children about what they have learnt. You can encourage and congratulate them.

*You can also download the annual report card, which summarises the three report cards for the year in one print out.

Ms. Carine Capel
