NAPLAN

9/05/2017

NAPLAN – National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy for all students in Years 3 and 5 will commence in Week 4 – on Tuesday 9th of May.  I all encourage all students to participate to the best of their ability. 

No doubt, there will be lots of talk in the media as the NAPLAN testing program gets closer.  This is often a topic of much debate and interest in the general community.  If your child is involved in the NAPLAN tests, I ask that you keep the following in mind:

  • We expect children to do their very best on the tests but NAPLAN tests do NOT count towards Report Card results or indeed, OP results later in schooling life.

  • The best preparation for NAPLAN testing is good quality teaching of the curriculum.  Your child’s teacher is well aware of the anticipated content of the tests and will do everything possible to ensure that your child is well prepared.

  • Make sure your child has a good breakfast on testing days and make sure they arrive with plenty of time to spare.  Children who arrive late will NOT be permitted to join in the test with their classmates.

  • IF your child is sick on NAPLAN test day/s, let the school know as soon as possible so that we can arrange for a catch up test if possible. 

  • If you have any concerns about your child’s participation in NAPLAN tests, please don’t hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher or a member of the administration team.
