NAPLAN 2022 | Important Information
Primary School NAPLAN testing will take place in Weeks 4 and 5 of Term 2, between 10 and 22 May.
WHAT IS NAPLAN?
The National Assessment Program - Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is designed to provide regular data on student achievement in the areas of literacy and numeracy, essential skills that each child needs to succeed.
NAPLAN is a point-in-time assessment that allows you to see how your child is progressing in literacy and numeracy against the national standard and compared with their peers throughout Australia. King’s teachers frequently use NAPLAN data to provide additional information about student progress, as well as to support the College in making informed decisions regarding differentiation and targeted teaching in the classroom, to improve future student outcomes.
NAPLAN testing takes place in May each year. Students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 participate in tests for reading, writing, conventions of language (spelling, grammar and punctuation), and numeracy. This year, King’s will be conducting NAPLAN online.
PARTICIPATION AND ADJUSTMENTS
At King’s, we expect and encourage all students to complete the NAPLAN testing process, and we are pleased with our established tradition of high levels of participation. During the testing window in May, catch-up tests will be offered for students who are absent on test days.
Support can be arranged for students with specific learning needs, particularly if a student regularly accesses similar support for school assessment tasks. Students may also be withdrawn from NAPLAN; this is a matter for consideration by parents and carers, in consultation with the College, and would require a signed withdrawal form.

For parents of Year 3 and 5 students:
If you wish to discuss your child’s participation in NAPLAN, please email:
Year 3AA - Mrs Saul: email@example.com
Year 5AA - Mrs Gilmour : firstname.lastname@example.org
Year 5AB - Mrs Fowell : email@example.com
Later in the year, you will receive your child’s personal NAPLAN report outlining their results and how they performed in relation to national standards. The information you receive will be valuable in helping you consider your child’s literacy and numeracy progress.
