The ASMS has carefully designed learning experiences that support all learners to work together and support them as they develop the capabilities and knowledge that will equip them to be successful in their future pathways. If your child is on exemption, it might be that they aren’t present for some critical learning, including assessment tasks that allow them to provide evidence of their learning.

To mitigate the risk to the student’s learning or assessment, students on exemption are required to negotiate with their class teachers two weeks before their exemption commences to ensure they are aware of any critical learning or assessment that they will miss. They can negotiate new deadlines for assessment items, and of course our virtual classroom provides all students with the opportunity to keep in touch with the learning that is happening in the class.

In the event of extended exemption, it may be the case that your child’s capacity to be successful in all their learning could be compromised. If this is the case, we will work with you and your child to understand the impacts of this on their learning and if and how we can support them to be successful in their learning.
