  • What is the difference between formative and summative assessments?

    Summative assessments feed into the students’ grades, whereas formative assessments do not. It is important for your child to complete the formative assessment when it is due to allow time for your teacher to best support student progress before the summative assessment. Formative assessments allow teachers to ascertain how well students have grasped the knowledge and skills that are needed in order to successfully complete their summative assessments.

  • What will my child’s report show at the end of each semester?

    We will report on each of the eight KLAs (Key Learning Areas) that we have produced workbooks and assessments for, of which your child has completed. This includes adjusted content and assessments. Faith can only report on curriculum content that the school has implemented, monitored and assessed students on.

    KLAs include:

    • English
    • Mathematics
    • Science
    • Humanities & Social Studies
    • The Arts
    • Technologies
    • Health & Physical Education
    • Languages

    For each of the KLAs, we will report on what your child has done well in during the semester, what their learning goals will be moving forward, and an overall personalised comment from their teacher. We will also indicate on the report which co-curriculum activities your child engaged in during the semester.
