NAPLAN Information

12/05/2015

NAPLAN

On May 12, 13 and 14, (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of week 4) Year 3 and 5 students will undertake NAPLAN testing.

One of our parents has recently expressed concern to me about their child's ability to cope with these tests due to learning and anxiety issues.

Parents should be aware that they have the right to withdraw their child from the tests.  This is strictly a parental decision and teachers and administration are unable to provide you with advice on whether or not to take this step. 

However, the process is a very simple one and involves completing a form which is kept on site in your child’s records in the office.

 If you would like more information about this process, please call the school this week (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) to speak with Mrs Jones about this.

Being ready for NAPLAN

As much as possible we need to have all year 3 and 5 students who are sitting for the tests, to be at school, on time, and well prepared with pencils, erasers etc, ready to go at 8:50am each day.  Please avoid absences or late arrivals if at all possible during this testing week.
