A new update to the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) My School website makes it easier to show the student progress being made in Australian schools.

My School is a website that provides information about nearly every school in Australia, including school finances, enrolment profile, attendance rates and teacher numbers.

The website, which was updated today, also displays the latest school level NAPLAN results and has a stronger focus on student progress and improved ways of making comparisons.

NAPLAN is an important tool to gauge progress and improvement because it provides nationally consistent and useful information to parents and the school community.

The information available on the website has been improved to make it easier for parents and the community to access the information they need.

Many parents value the information on My School and use it to better understand the performance of their child’s school, and engage with their teachers in an informed way.

Students, teachers and families are encouraged to visit the site and take a close look at the data for their school.
