The school sends them out - they aren't sent by the external body. The school receives and envelopes them and sends them out. It is that simple. The school has no involvement in their generation just the sending.

And yes, the sending part can be done for all years at the same time. If kids don't take them home well cant do anything about that but getting them to all kids on same day. Yes, I call that simple. If it takes an extra day because of whatever, fine. But same day should be basic

Did you not read that sometimes, even though the school DO send them home on the same day a whole raft of reasons might mean a teacher doesn’t. I’ve experienced a report not going home on the same day before. Had to be sent the next day.

I’m astounded this is so difficult for you really.

Why? Why does it matter if year 3 get theirs before year 5. It makes zero difference.

What exactly do parents do with the information?

My daughter ended up bringing hers home today. My son hasn't got his yet though (different schools).

SA here. We received an email from the principal today saying not to expect them home before the 18/9.

Our school sends them out in the mail.  They don’t do this with school reports though, not quite sure why they are treated differently.

Yes, ours are sent out too. Our reports are digital through the school app.

We don't even get an envelope. Last time I found the piece of paper with the details crushed under a lunchbox in the bottom of the bag. It had probably been there a week. Reports are electronic here though, through the dept. edu online portal.

RP - I don't know what parents do with it. Well most. I do have friends who have had it requested for highschool entry/interviews/applications. My neighbours asked me when they would have gotten them because the boarding school her daughter is due to start next year has been asking for them. Our local highschool doesn't care, then again their enrollment procedure for the local primary catchments seems to be a letter asking if you child will be attend then next year (there is literally one state high and one catholic, so it's not like the have much competition).

My daughter got hers today (vic), our first time sitting naplan so trying to figure it all out. She’s more excited about the questionnaire for upcoming school swimming lessons.

VIC, year 3, got ours today. I did notice the middle 60% band is a higher range than when my son did year 3.

Mine arrived in the post today for primary.  I noticed it had underneath them all that the test was done online, and under writing it said there were computer issues and not to read too much into it (can’t remember the wording).  My kid has a writing disability and had a massive increase in writing due to being able to use a computer!

Is there a reason you need the Naplan results so urgently?  If not then I think waiting patiently and not bugging the school would be the way to go.

The office staff have enough to deal with without having parents ringing up trying to find out when the naplan is being sent out.

Schools would save themselves a lot of trouble is, as part of their communication to parents, let them know that Naplan results are expected between X dates and we will post them out.

If end of term reports can go out on the same day so should NAPLAN.


Good grief, I bet your school loves you.

I dont spend my time telling the school my children attend what to do but as someone with a communications background it drives me spare just how bad the basics are done

And yes, I have also done the Board stint and set out school policies and procedures as to how this stuff should be done. Its not time consuming just organisational. Some schools are just bad at it - and wonder why parents get frustrated.

Our school only got the online access to results today and do not have the paper copies yet (WA). Guess who will be spending her weekend putting together an analysis ready for management meeting on Monday! Fun times ahead for me.

Apart from those who haven't done it before, most people would know they come out in the second half of Term 3.  I'm not sure that schools actually know when they will come out other than from the second half of Term 3.

They can’t tell you because they don’t know. They are not being difficult on this issue. They don’t know :shrug:

Dunno about others but I start the fire with the ones I receive usually in the mail, I don't even open the envelope.
Didn't do it this year though, DS is in Yr 4.

I'm in NSW. I asked my son's year 3 teacher about NAPLAN results last week, just casually as part of a nice after school chat. She said the school hadn't received them yet and had no idea when they would come, but she thought probably sometime before the end of term.

They legitimately don't know and there is no point in harassing them as they probably won't know until they show up on the door step.

Plus, the results will still be the same (and equally useless) no matter which day you get them.

And I have a child in year 3 and one in year 6 and it is TOTALLY normal for notes, reports and all sorts of things to NOT come home on the same day, although the school does typically make a special effort to get the school reports home on the same day.
