2013 NAPLAN results

11/10/2013

Following the high of the Spring Hill Fair, we discovered on Monday September 16, that our Year 7 students were ranked as having the top NAPLAN scores in the state. This is an amazing achievement. I am very proud of our Year 7 students, and is a testament to their focus and dedication to excellence. Well done!

The NAPLAN results across Year 3 and 5 were also hugely  gratifying, and demonstrated a marked improvement from our 2012 results. The highlights include:

  • Year 7 students were well above the national mean in all areas of the tests
  • Year 5 students were well above the national mean in Spelling and Numeracy , and  above the national mean in Reading and Writing
  • Year 3 students were above the national mean in Reading, Writing, Spelling and  Grammar and Punctuation.

 

All parents of Year 3, 5 and 7 students would have now received their child’s individual NAPLAN results. It is also important to remember that the tests are a point in time data collection process,  that allows  schools  to gather information about a child’s learning and achievement.  The tests also allow schools to evaluate how effectively they are teaching key concepts, and how to strengthen teacher practice and student understanding. Every day, teachers are collecting  a range of data to make judgements about a child’s development and the efficacy of their teaching. I welcome and encourage any  parent who is concerned about their child’s NAPLAN performance, to make contact with their child’s teacher to arrange a time to review and discuss the results of the tests.
