New Report Format
When written reports are sent home this week you will notice that we have changed their format. Our aim is to provide you with an informative snapshot of your child's achievement at school. For the end of year reports we are aiming to include individual student achievement data in the areas of literacy and numeracy. I would also encourage parents to follow up directly with subject teachers if they have specific questions relating to the reports.
I have great pleasure in announcing that Sarah Atkins has been made a permanent teacher at Maitland Area School. This appointment is in recognition of the number of years that Sarah has filled temporary positions in the school and the outstanding work she has done in the JP area of our School. Congratulations Sarah.
Secondly, I can now confirm that Lauren Webb who is currently working in the year 3 class has been appointed to stay with us in her current capacity for the remainder of the year. Star Derrington will be returning 2 days a week next term and will work across the school supporting students in Literacy.
