Reporting to Whānau

Point Chevalier School | Rangi-mata-rau reports on learner progress using the Hero app.

Hero provides a story of how your child is progressing in the core learning areas, as well as across the broader curriculum.

Hero allows you as a parent to comment on your child’s learning which may have been uploaded through their Learning, Maths, Reading or Writing pages. The learning is uploaded after the teacher and your child have made a decision to publish it.

Below are some guidelines about what is published and suggestions of how you could respond to the posts. This information can also be found on the ‘About this page’ link in Hero.


Reporting to parents in Hero

This online, written reporting gives you a good picture of your child’s progress and development. Your child will share further aspects of this picture at their Student-led Conference.

You can also see the current year’s “report” for your child which pulls together their Reading, Writing and Maths comments, along with their General Comments from the current year. After that, previous years’ information can be found under each learning area button.

Below is some guidance around understanding what you see on this page. It helps explain the National Curriculum Levels and your child’s report. This information can also be found on the ‘About this page’ link in Hero.

If you have any concerns about your child’s progress or need support understanding our online reporting, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
