ICAS Assesments

2021 ICAS Assesments are going ahead.

Hello Parents & Carers of students in Years 3-6.

NCCD

NCCD

Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD).

Information provided about students to the Australian Government for the NCCD includes:

• year of schooling,
• category of disability: physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional,
• level of adjustment provided: support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive.

This information assists schools to:

• formally recognise the supports and adjustments provided to students with disability in schools,
• consider how they can strengthen the support of students with disability in schools,
• develop shared practices so that they can review their learning programs in order to improve educational outcomes for students with disability.

The NCCD provides state and federal governments with the information they need to plan more broadly for the support of students with disability.

The NCCD will have no direct impact on your child and your child will not be involved in any testing process. The school will provide data to the Australian Government in such a way that no individual student will be able to be identified – the privacy and confidentiality of all students is ensured.

Further information about the NCCD can be found on the NCCD Portal (https://www.nccd.edu.au).

If you have any questions about the NCCD, please email the school.

Kind Regards,
Katherine McKnight - Learning and Support Teacher
Scott Staveley - Principal

Birthday Celebrations

Dear Parents,
As a result of the impact of  COVID-19, we have revised our current practices to ensure the safety of all students. We ask that if your child is celebrating a birthday you do not send them to school with any cakes, lolly bags or gifts to share with their classmates.

Thank you for your understanding
