NAPLANhttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/NAPLAN.aspxNAPLAN<p></p><p>NAPLAN is a common measure for all Australian students that provides evidence of literacy and numeracy achievement and progress at system, school and student levels. It is a test of reading, writing, language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation), and numeracy, that are taught explicitly through the Australian curriculum and developed over time. NAPLAN is the only nationally, consistent measure to determine whether or not students are meeting important educational outcomes.<br><br>NAPLAN assesses literacy and numeracy skills that students have already learnt through the school curriculum. In addition, teachers will ensure that students, are familiar with the test formats and are supported to become Assessment Capable Learners.<br><br>Assessment capable learners refers to students who:<br></p><p></p><ul><li>are aware of their current knowledge, understandings and skills</li><li>understand their next steps for learning</li><li>select relevant resources and tools to guide their learning</li><li>seek feedback and recognise mistakes as opportunities to learn</li><li>monitor their own progress and adjust their next steps as needed</li><li>recognise what they have learnt.</li></ul><p></p><p>Focusing on developing Assessment capable learners builds resilient and lifelong learners who have the confidence and skills to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding and proficiencies across all learning areas and in real world situations, including assessment environments. Continuing to grow the engagement, progress and achievement of students through effective pedagogy and responsive learning and teaching cycles is key.<br></p><h3><strong>NAPLAN Online</strong></h3><p>2021 NAPLAN Online testing will take place over a two week window (May 11-21) to benefit student performance. The exact test schedule will be communicated early Term 2 and will be completed in the order of Writing followed by Reading, then Language Conventions and finally Numeracy. Students will complete one test per day. All four tests will be completed online for all Year 3 and Year 5 students except for the Year 3 Writing test which will be paper based.<br><br>NAPLAN Online will provide better assessment with more precise results, a faster turnaround of information (from 2022) and a more engaging test for students. NAPLAN Online is a tailored test that adapts to student responses.<br></p><p>All Year 3 and Year 5 students at St Peter’s will participate in the Coordinated NAPLAN Online Practice Test on Thursday 25 March.<br><br>Please see the link below to the nap.edu.au website where additional information can be located including links to NAPLAN Online demonstration tests where students can view the sorts of ICT skills that are used in questions, they encounter with NAPLAN Online.<br><br></p><p><a href="https://nap.edu.au/docs/default-source/resources/naplan-online-information-brochure-for-parents-and-carers.pdf" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">NAPLAN Online – information for parents and carers</a><br></p><p><br></p>
COVID Restrictionshttp://www.stpeterscaboolture.qld.edu.au/community-news/Pages/COVID-Restrictions.aspxCOVID Restrictions<p>​Our capacity to continue to prioritise having parents journey with us and be involved in community activities is dependent upon our compliance with current Qld Health and BCE guidelines. Whilst these are subject to change at any time, we ask parents to comply with the following:<br></p><p></p><ul><li>Do not attend our school site if you are unwell or have any cold/ flu like symptoms</li><li>Please register your visit via the QR code at school entrances</li><li>Ensure social distancing from all non family/ household members</li><li>Visitors should not gather in groups</li><li>Carry a mask and wear when social distancing is not possible</li><li>Limit to six parents in any room at one time- please wait outside classroom until numbers allow access</li><li>Please be considerate of parents waiting and keep classroom visit brief</li><li>Use hand sanitiser on entry</li></ul><p></p><p>Recent events have shown us that expectations and restrictions can change at any time. Some parents have expressed concern that the use of QR codes and social distancing is being ignored. We ask that our community remain vigilant to ensure we are able to continue to welcome parents and visitors onto school grounds. Your understanding and compliance with these expectations is appreciated.<br><br>​<br></p><h3><strong>Assemblies and Parent Gatherings on School Grounds</strong></h3><p><br>Covid restrictions continue to impact our capacity to have families present for school events. At this stage it is necessary to cap numbers to ensure that our record keeping and social distancing of adults meets requirements. To this end we are not yet able to offer open invitations to assemblies and other school activities. This Friday 5th February  is our Covenant Liturgy and while we establish routines, this assembly will be for students only. Next week we will hold our Year 6 Ministry assembly to which our Year 6 parents will be invited. Subsequent Friday assemblies will be via invitation so that parents whose children have a role (class running assembly) or are receiving an award, will be advised in advance so they can attend if available. Whilst we work towards establishing the ‘new normal’ we ask that your presence within the school grounds is ‘purposeful’ to limit the number of parents on site at any one time. We also ask that parents refrain from gathering outside classrooms at pick up time. If there is a need to enter the school grounds for a student pick up or other purpose, please wait outside the school gates until after the bell. Your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated.<br>​​<br><br></p>
