Assessment Practice & counseling
We believe that effective assessment provides information to improve teaching and learning.. Through the principles of Assessment for Learning, we give the children regular feedback on their work so that they understand what to do better. We give parents regular feedback as well on their child’s progress so that teachers are all working together to raise standards for all the children.
Aims and Objectives of assessment in our school are to:
- Enable our children to demonstrate what they know, understand and can do in their work;
- Help our children understand what they need to do next to improve their work;
- Help teachers and children to set achievable targets;
- Allow teachers to plan work that accurately reflects the needs of their pupils based on the work that they have completed ( the formative use of summative assessment)
- Provide parents with regular information that enables them to support their child’s learning
- Provide the principal and management with information that allows them to make judgements about the effectiveness of the school.
In the spirit of true partnership, all staff members of the school share responsibility with parents for every student’s success. MV will always seek to :
- Treat all students with respect and care
- Assist and enable them to succeed
- Enforce all school rules and policies consistently & fairly
MV hopes that having chosen the school for their children, parents will make every effort to understand the school’s philosophy & mission and do all they can to support the school in its programmes, its rules, and in its practices. All parents are invited to attend open houses as well as information sessions on the academic programmes, local educational opportunities and relevant developmental issues.
Volunteering at MV
MV considers itself very fortunate to have a unique base of parents with vast amount of experiences and perspectives that enrich the school. The expectation is that every family contributes volunteer hours in a way that is appropriate to their time constraints and skill set. This is consistent with the belief that the children benefit most from a school community in which families are involved in the life of the school
