At Gleneagles Secondary College we believe that clear and timely reporting of your child’s achievements and progress at school is important. With this belief in mind we have made the decision to move to ongoing online reporting via Compass. The goal is to effectively gather, analyse and reflect on evidence to make informed and consistent decisions to improve your child’s learning experience.
You will receive two types of reports; Learning Snapshots and feedback on Common Assessment Tasks (CATs) and School Assessed Coursework (SACs).
Learning Snapshots look at the core character traits and learning skills of your child. They are intended be a quick insight into a student at a particular time. Teachers will complete learning snapshots at least two times per semester.
The three core character traits are:
Years 7-10: Teachers will be reporting on the Common Assessment Tasks that take place throughout the semester. CATs are marked against the Victorian Curriculum and also against a school wide scale. Each CAT has comments and there is a minimum of 1 per term per subject.
VCE: Teachers will be reporting on School Assessed Coursework as outlined by the relevant VCAA study design. They are marked against a common school wide scale. The frequency is dependent on the study design of the individual subject.

In support of the report format we will hold interviews with students and their parents at specific times throughout the year to discuss the students’ progress at school.
Parent teacher interviews give an opportunity for a detailed discussion of the student’s progress in each subject. We encourage parents and students to meet with as many teachers as possible.
Parents will be notified of dates for Parent/Teacher Interviews via Compass. On-line bookings are also made through Compass.
The Student Voice Committee allows groups of students to work towards positive changes while representing the entire student body. Being involved in this program was an exciting way for me to begin my year and has presented me with a variety of learning experiences. The Student Voice selection process enables applicants to gain confidence whilst completing an interview. My participation has benefited my group work and public speaking. I now have the chance to gather feedback from other students and bring forth their opinions to the Student Voice Committee. As a member, I also had the opportunity to become a junior school captain. After putting the speech writing skills I learned in the committee to the test, I was fortunate enough to be elected. I’m proud to be a leader of the junior school and especially pleased to be gaining valuable life skills. Being a leader has made my time at Gleneagles challenging, interesting and rewarding.
