Annually the Government conducts the National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) – which assesses Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 across Australia. The NAPLAN maps each student’s outcomes onto a ten-band continuum, and results are reported against national minimum standards which are Year 3 Band 2, Year 5 Band 4, Year 7 Band 5 and Year 9 Band 6.
The following table reflects Kilvington’s summary report at Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 for each of the areas tested for NAPLAN 2017: Reading, Writing, Language Conventions – Spelling, Language Conventions – Grammar and Punctuation, and Numeracy.
This is an outstanding result for our School community, and one of which we can all be proud. We reiterate that while NAPLAN is an important measure, it is one of many and should be considered in the context of each student’s overall experience at school. Our priority is to provide our students with a holistic approach to education, focusing our efforts on supporting our students through academic excellence and care.
Congratulations to our outstanding teachers, our hardworking and committed students, and our supportive School community.
