Your Primary School Team
BIS uses Tapestry in Early Learning and SeeSaw in Grades 1 – 5 for communication, reporting and sharing of student learning. Teachers and students can upload pictures and videos as a record of learning. Teachers and parents can then add comments to describe learning. This helps educators and parents to record, track and celebrate children's progress.
Teachers also use the message / inbox function for weekly updates and important parent inform. Login information is provided by class teachers.
Reporting in the Primary School consists of three parent conferences, a final written report and regular updates via Tapestry and Seesaw.
7/8 October 2020: Three Way Conference is attended by the student, parent(s) and teacher. The purpose of this conference is to set learning and growth goals for the year.
