Upcoming - NAPLAN

NAPLAN – 15-17 MAY 2018
This year NAPLAN will be held on 15-17 May. The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual national assessment for all primary aged students in Years 3 and 5.  NAPLAN tests the sorts of skills that are essential for every child to progress through school and life, such as reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy.
The best way you can help your child prepare for NAPLAN is to reassure them that NAPLAN tests are just one part of their school program, and to urge them to simply do the best they can on the day.
Participation in NAPLAN  All students in Years 3, 5, 7, and 9 are expected to participate in NAPLAN tests. NAPLAN tests give you information on how your child is progressing against national standards. This information allows for additional intervention if necessary to ensure your child progresses at a rate where they can fully participate in all aspects of the curriculum. NAPLAN does not replace, but rather complements, assessments run by your child's classroom teacher throughout the year.
Adjustments can be provided for students with disability to enable them to access the tests on an equivalent basis as students without disability, and should be discussed with your child's school prior to the tests.  Parents or carers may withdraw their child from the tests to address issues such as religious beliefs and philosophical objections to testing. It is recommended that withdrawal be considered in consultation with your child's school.Wherever possible, schools will organise for individual students who are absent at the time of testing to complete missed tests at another time during testing week.
