A North Coast school has been congratulated by the Secretary of the NSW Department of Education, Mark Scott, for achieving significant gains in student learning growth in a national analysis of NAPLAN results.

Mullumbimby Public School achieved substantially above average gains in student reading and/or numeracy achievement as students progressed from year 3 to year 5 between 2015 and 2017.

The school is among 39 NSW public schools – 17 in regional, rural and remote areas and 22 in the greater Sydney metropolitan region – identified as having significant student learning growth by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority.

‘The best measure of effective education is how student results improve over time, and that is why NAPLAN is such an important diagnostic tool for schools and families,’ Mr Scott said.

‘We can learn so much from these schools about how they achieved these impressive gains so that other schools can benefit from their success.

‘Congratulations to all the school leaders and teachers for their commitment to their students.’

The most recent NAPLAN results and other information for schools across Australia can be found on the updated My School website – www.myschool.edu.au.
