NAPLAN success for Catholic schools

Fourteen SA Catholic schools have been recognised by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) for the exceptionally high gains achieved by students in their NAPLAN scores between 2015 and 2017.

Students in these schools who sat NAPLAN reading or numeracy tests in 2015 and again in 2017 have shown increases in their scores that are significantly greater than both the national average gain and the gain by students from other similar schools.

“Every one of our schools is committed to excellence in teaching and learning,” says Dr Neil McGoran, Director, Catholic Education South Australia.

“The results of these highlighted schools are particularly significant. I commend the students, and their teachers, for the substantial improvements made to learning outcomes.

“We will work with these schools to gain their insights into the factors that contributed to these improvements. They will be used to inform the development of school improvement plans across other Catholic schools.”
