Mandatory reporting to parents in writing is required only twice per year, with two opportunities per year for parent-teacher interviews, as per the Education Act (and therefore the P-12 CARF).
Some schools choose to provide brief written reports at the end of terms one and three, but these do not form part of the mandatory reporting framework. Reporting that is over and above what is required should be the subject to consultation at the school level via the Local Consultative Committee (LCC).
The Workload Reduction Review Resource (poster) provides a snapshot of what reporting looks like and what it does not look like if the requirements are being met at the school. Find out more here: https://www.qtu.asn.au/workload_reduction
Members may also find it useful to refer to the Joint Statement on the Purpose and Use of Data in Queensland Schools, noting that it was updated in February 2021. This Joint Statement provides information on what data is required, the purpose and use of the data and, who the audience will be.
For advice or assistance with matters relating to reporting please contact our Queensland Teachers’ Assist desk on 1300 11 7823 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
