Students who are in years 3, 5, 7 and 9 are expected to participate in the testing. A decision to withdraw a student from the NAPLAN tests is the responsibility of the student’s parent/carer, and not the school. We recommend that you discuss your concerns with your child’s teacher or school principal in the first instance. If you are not satisfied with your school’s response, you can contact the test administration authority in your state or territory. Test administration authorities are responsible for the administration of the NAPLAN tests, including withdrawals. Relevant contact details are available under the Test administration authorities contacts section.
Parents/carers are encouraged to visit the Adjustments for students with disability to determine if the adjustments schools can apply for are appropriate for their child's participation in NAPLAN.
