National Standard Data 2016

This data is collated over the school year and is reported to the Board and to the Ministry of Education. The National Standards set clear expectations that students need to meet in Reading, Writing and Maths in the first eight years of school.

The data is collected at the anniversary of a student's first year at school, at the anniversary of their second year at school, at the anniversary of their third year at school, then at the end of Year 4, Year 5, Year 6, Year 7 and Year 8.

We report National Standards to parents at the end of year, in our school reports. We will indicate the Year level that your child is currently working at, in these reports. (eg. If they are a Year 8 and working at a Year 6 level or if they are a Year 4 working at a Year 7 level etc...)
