Each year all students in Year 3, Year 5, Year 7 and Year 9 who attend Australian public, catholic or private schools complete the "National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy" (NAPLAN) tests over three days in term 2. The students and their families receive information about the individual child's results while a school receives each student's results and school results compared to other schools in Australia.
Last week our school received our 2015 NAPLAN results and they were truly OUTSTANDING. The 2015 results reflect the world's best-practice, innovative, and research-based teaching and learning programs and practices, leadership development programs, and parent participation programs our school learning community has effectively and successfully developed, implemented and evaluated over the past 3 years.
The most important NAPLAN data we receive is where our school's scores are compared to other schools in Australia that are similar to Auburn North. These schools are called ‘Like Schools'. Please find below our Year 3 and Year 5 school scores
Therefore, like our Year 3 students, our Year 5 students outperformed ‘Like Schools' in ALL five areas.
· Grammar and Punctuation
That means we outperformed ‘Like Schools' in ALL 10 areas.These are excellent results and reflect the achievements of each of our Kindy to Year 6 students and they help demonstrate what a school learning community can achieve when staff, students and parents work, teach and learn ‘together in perfect harmony'. We really have developed a learning community that is something special, something wonderful and something exceptional. Congratulations all students, staff and parents.
While we are proud of these results at Auburn North we are always determined to move FORWARD and do even better. Our teachers will be analysing individual student results and our school results to further improve our teaching and learning programs so that each K-6 student exceeds their full academic potential and so our school performs even better next year.
