We warmly invite and encourage you to actively participate in your child’s learning journey at our ‘Student Led Conferences’ on Wednesday 2nd August.

Student Led Conferences are:

  • A celebration of Individual Learning
  • A dialogue about learning
  • 40 minutes long (max.)
  • Student driven shared learning with /Parent/Family
  • 6-7 going on at the same time in one classroom

Student Led Conferences differ from traditional Teacher Parent Interviews and Three Way Conferences by empowering the child to talk about their own learning. Our ‘Student Led Conferences’ are designed to promote learning autonomy so that students can reflect on where they are and where they need to go.
Parents will be supported by the class teacher as they inquire further into their child’s learning through dialogue with their child.

Times have been set to cater for parents with multiple students at school and are able to be booked online by following this link:

Session 1: 1:00 - 1:40 pm
Session 2: 1:40 - 2:20 pm
Session 3: 2:20 - 3:00pm
Session 4: 3:30 - 4:10 pm
Session 5: 4:10 - 4:50 pm
Session 6: 4:50 - 5.30 pm

We appreciate that the format and objectives of a Student Led Conference do not make provision for individual parent discussions with the teacher. Therefore if there is a relevant need please make contact with your child’s teacher for a suitable time.

To protect the integrity of the Student Led Conference and ensure its value as a key reporting process, we ask that, if able, siblings not accompany students.

School Closure
School will close at 12:30pm on Wednesday 2nd August for our Student Led Conferences and students are required to be picked up at that time.  After School Care will not be running and there will be no afternoon bus service available. 

We look forward to you continuing to be a part of your child’s learning at St Mary’s Catholic School.

Kind regards

Ben Fuller
