Microsoft Office 365

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are excited to announce that we will be providing every student with free access to the latest suite of Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneDrive, school email and OneNote).

This is a Department of Education initiative in partnership with Microsoft which will allow students to have access to the most current cloud-based technology. Office 365 for Education is an internet based service provided by Microsoft for educational purposes only. As we are a ‘bring your own device’ school this new initiative reiterates the importance of your child having a suitable laptop to bring to school each day. Further information about recommended devices can be found under parent information and BYOD.

Office 365 will allow your child to:

  • install five free copies of Microsoft Office on any device at home.
  • access all of their school-related files from any device, any time with an Internet connection.
  • communicate and receive feedback and support more effectively with each of their teachers.
  • learn the e-learning and information technology skills required at University and in many fields of employment.

Your child will be provided with their username and password and shown how to use Office 365. This will give them access to all of the Office 365 features.

If you do not want your child to have access to Microsoft Office 365 an opt-out form can be completed and returned. Copies are available on our school website or at reception. Students will need to continue to follow our Digital Learning Policy which is also on our website.

Reporting on Student Achievement

Progress Reports:

These reports will work alongside our continuous reporting on Learning Tasks to enable you to access the most relevant and important information about the progress of your child and their work habits. This approach to reporting on student progress has been refined to facilitate ongoing data informed conversations about student learning between staff, students, and families.

Each term your child’s teachers will complete progress reports which provides valuable information about their attendance, classroom behaviour, homework, and attitude and preparedness for learning. These reports will be available via Compass through the Lakeview Parent Portal. Please refer to the Progress Report Matrix for an explanation of each Area of Assessment.

Continuous Reporting:

Alongside our progress reports, you and child will have ongoing access to view the results of all formal assessment tasks (Learning Tasks) for each subject on Compass through the Lakeview Parent Portal. Teachers will upload these results as they are finalised on an ongoing basis throughout the year, to give you and your child a clear picture of their academic progress.

Parent Student Teacher Conferences:

PST Conferences are part of the formal and ongoing Teaching and Learning program offered at Lakeview Senior College and as such students are required to participate with parents/guardians/carers and receive specific and practical feedback on their progress in each subject. These conversations are an important opportunity to celebrate student success and plan practical ways to work together to continue to support individual student learning and growth.

2024 PST Conferences Dates

Term 1 – Monday 26th February
Term 3 – Monday 12th August
