AsP Primary Re-enrolment Rate

The AsP Primary Re-enrolment Rate report provides information on the Re-enrolment rate for a primary cluster and its schools.

This report is available only to Asset Planners in the Planning and Demography unit.

How will this report benefit me?

Users can view the re-enrolment rate for primary schools in a cluster, including non-government schools. Asset planners can use this information to understand which schools in a primary cluster have low re-enrolment rates and where the students are choosing to move to instead.

What does the AsP Primary Re-enrolment Rate report provide?

The following visualisations are available in this report:

School Re-enrolment Compared to Cluster

  • This line chart displays the re-enrolment rate for the selected cluster and primary school.
  • The scholastic year is on the x-axis. Note that where a cohort is chosen that has not yet completed primary school, only the available scholastic years will be shown.
  • The re-enrolment rate % is on the y-axis. The re-enrolment rate in kindergarten is always 100%, as this is the original cohort.
  • Hover over any data point to view the actual number of students remaining in that year.
  • Re-enrolment is defined as the retention of the original Kindergarten cohort that commenced in the selected year. Students who joined the school after kindergarten are excluded from the chart.
  • 10 years of historical data will eventually be included, however the earliest year displayed is 2011.  This is due to unavailability of high-quality data prior to this year.
  • The school’s re-enrolment rate is always compared with the cluster.

Destination Primary Schools

  • This doughnut chart displays all known primary schools that students who did not re-enrol in their original primary school went to.
  • Non-government schools are included where known. This is based on NAPLAN 3 and 5 data so it is not complete. For example the destination school for a student who moved to a non-government school in Year 6 would not appear in this chart as it would not be known to us.
  • Click on the Focus Mode button on the top right-hand corner to expand the chart and view all schools.
  • Note that where the destination school is unknown, it will not appear on this chart. Therefore the total number of students who have left, as shown in the School Re-enrolment Compared to Cluster chart, will usually be larger than the number of students shown in the Destination Primary Schools chart.
  • This chart shows the destination schools for all students from the cohort who left. It is not possible to identify which students left in which years.
  • If a whole cluster has been selected, schools that are part of the cluster may appear in the list.  This indicates that students moved from one primary school in the cluster to another. The students will still appear even though they are moving within the cluster, because they left their original primary school.

Use the following slicers to filter and analyse the data:


Use this slicer to select a cluster to analyse. You can scroll to find the cluster you need, or use the search bar at the top of the slicer.


  • To improve report loading times, this slicer defaults to the first primary cluster in the list.
  • You can only select one cluster at a time in this report.
  • Click on the arrow to the left of the cluster name to view the schools for a cluster. You can select a single school from the cluster to view, or the whole cluster.
  • This slicer controls both charts.

Kindergarten Enrolment Year

Use this slicer to select a cohort, i.e. the students who commenced Kindergarten in the selected year.

What should I look for?

  • Are many students in the cluster leaving to go to other clusters or non-government schools? Are students mostly moving within the cluster? This may inform future demographic projections for the cluster.
  • Are there any schools in the cluster that have a lower re-enrolment than others?
  • Are there particular scholastic years with a steeper drop-off, e.g. Year 5? This may indicate many students move into opportunity classes in other public schools, or into non-government schools.
  • Are there any particular destination schools that are preferred by students who leave their original school? If there have been no boundary changes this may indicate a change of parental choice.

Where does this data come from?

  • Annual enrolment census.  This report compares where a student was enrolled in Kindergarten, with subsequent enrolments in each scholastic year.
  • NAPLAN – school where a student sat the Y3 and Y5 assessments. Where a student did not re-enrol at their original school, and a subsequent enrolment cannot be found in other government schools, NAPLAN data is used to identify the school the student moved to.

How frequently is data updated?

  • Historical enrolments are updated annually after the Enrolment census is completed in August.
  • NAPLAN data is updated annually after NAPLAN results are released.
