Naplan Results 2021

In 2021, our students performed exceptionally well in Literacy and Numeracy Naplan tests, and in many areas, we achieved our highest scores since testing began; all this during a pandemic! We are thrilled to share our results with the wider community.

It gives me great pleasure to share our 2021 NAPLAN results with you. Our Year 3 and Year 5 students have done exceptionally well in their English and Mathematics assessments and these results are a testament to how hard they have been working in the classroom and, of course, during remote learning. The quality of the education occurring in our school can’t be solely judged on NAPLAN results; similarly, the results cannot and should not be used as the only measure of a child’s education. I do believe that NAPLAN is a valuable tool, albeit only one data set, that provides our school with detailed data at various levels about strengths and areas for improvement.

Given that our students participated in remote learning for half of 2020, collectively we should be very proud of their progress and achievement. I congratulate our parents for their commitment to their child’s learning (onsite and offsite) and I also thank our teachers for their efforts to ensure 2020 was a year of solid academic progress. No mean feat during a pandemic.


Below are the School Summary Reports for Year 3 and Year 5, which give insight as to how we compare with the average scores for our state. 

I am extremely proud to share the following data with you:

(Approximate/ average 2 year median scale score growth is 75 points)


We are so proud of our Year 3 and Year 5 students for their achievements in these tests – it shows just how hard they’re working with their teachers and parents to improve their literacy and numeracy skills. Our ‘back to basics’ approach to teaching and learning is certainly paying dividends for our students.
