Student Led Conferences

Held in Term 3

Student Led Conferences

Student-Led Conferences will be conducted at the end of Term 3.

 What are Student-Led Conferences?

Student Led Conferences are an integral part of our reporting process and are linked in with our mid-year reporting processes.  They differ from the teacher-directed parent teacher interviews, as the student is actively involved in the learning and the reporting process.  Student Led Conferences take the form of a conversation between the student, their parents and their teacher, allowing students to demonstrate their individual growth and any particular achievements that they are proud of. 

 Why do we run Student-Led Conferences?

The benefits of these conferences are numerous and include:

  • Student takes responsibility for their own learning:
  • They are required to set their own learning goals
  • Monitor and share their progress through self, peer and teacher feedback
  • Evaluate their progress through teacher directed assessment and self  and peer evaluation
  • Help to direct future learning
  • Helps to foster a home-school partnership
  • open and honest dialogue
  • parents, students and teachers have access and direction in student learning
  • Gives students a chance to show parents direct improvement in their own learning
  • Allows parents, students and teachers to celebrate the student’s success together!
  • Gives students a chance to develop and use real world skills:
  • Self-reflection and evaluation
  • Organisational and communication
  • Self-confidence

What if I want a one on one parent teacher interview?

Some parents feel that they are disadvantaged by Student Led Conferences as they are not given the opportunity to discuss their child’s achievements, behaviour and social issues directly and privately with their teacher.  However, we strongly encourage parents to make an appointment to discuss these issues directly with their teacher at any stage during the year.  You don’t need to wait until the mid-year conferences to discuss your child’s progress - in fact, the earlier, the better!
