NAPLAN – Communicating to parents

Schools should inform parents about the 2016 NAPLAN tests by Tuesday 26 April.

A letter for parents, and parent-carer consent forms for exemption/parent withdrawal and access to disability adjustments are available on the PAR and BOSTES websites, along with other documents to support schools in the administration of NAPLAN.

A link to the exemption form, translated into community languages, is provided on the BOSTES website.

Additional information for parents can be found on the ACARA NAPLAN website. Schools may choose to download the NAPLAN information for parents brochure and distribute to parents or provide the link in their online communication to parents.

The 2016 Handbook for Principals, which was delivered to all schools in the last week of February, should be provided to all NAPLAN coordinators.
