Student Wellbeing


Ahead of NAPLAN results for students being released from Monday 17 July 2023, we would like to inform you of some changes to this year’s Naplan reporting. These are changes being introduced nationally by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA). 

NAPLAN will continue to measure student achievement in numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, and grammar and punctuation but the results will now be presented in 4 proficiency levels: 

These proficiencies are: 

  • exceeding  
  • strong 
  • developing  
  • needs additional support. 

This change will give schools, parents and carers clearer information that details student achievement against new proficiency levels.

Students’ NAPLAN reports will continue to show how they are tracking against their peers and provide an indication of their skill levels against national averages and where we would expect them to be in order to get the most out of schooling. This provides valuable information to teachers about how we can continue to support your child.

Each set of NAPLAN results is an important milestone but it’s also important that students know that one result does not define them – these results are about making sure every student gets the support they need so they can continue to get the best from their learning.

When we provide you with your results, you will also receive information about what the new proficiency levels mean.

As always, you’re welcome to speak to us if you have any questions about these changes.
