Spotlight is a space where students' upload evidence of learning in reading, writing, mathematics, inquiry and specialist subjects. Parents can view work in Spotlight through the Parent Portal and comment on learning progress. This will provide you with ongoing insight into progress in learning throughout the year and will supplement our formal written reports which will also be shared through the Parent Portal.




Online Reports

All of our written reports are now shared online as a PDF in the @school app/Parent Portal. These can be accessed, read and downloaded at any time after they are published and will remain in this space while your child is at Somerville Intermediate School. These reports will complement the work shared in Spotlight and will focus on progress.
