Premier's Priority

The Premier’s Priority report provides the percentage of NAPLAN Reading and Numeracy results in the top 2 bands for a school, as specified in the Premier’s Priority to improve education results.  More information on this priority and how it is calculated can be found here.

Schools can use this report to assess their school’s results in Reading and Numeracy and to determine whether any initiatives they have implemented to increase the number of results in the top 2 bands have led to  expected success.

Executive Directors and Directors have access to all schools within their principal network.

How will this report benefit me?

The Premier’s Priority report allows schools to track their improvement on the key metric of % of students in the top 2 bands for Reading and Numeracy.

What does the Premier's Priority report provide?

This two page report presents information on:

Page 1 – Single School

% of Results in Top 2 Bands for Reading and Numeracy by Calendar Year

  • This line chart displays the % of results in the top 2 bands for the past 5 years.
  • The x-axis displays Calendar Year.
  • The y-axis displays % of results in the top 2 bands.
  • The % of results is generally higher than the % of students. A student may be in the top 2 bands for either reading or numeracy, or both.  The student’s results that are in the top 2 bands are included, so the same student may be included once (for reading or numeracy) or twice (if they are in the top 2 bands for both).

Results in Top 2 Bands

  • This table displays the number of results in Reading and Numeracy at the school for the selected year.

Count of All Results

  • This table displays the total number of results in Reading and Numeracy at the school for the selected year. Each student would have 2 results, one for Reading and one for Numeracy.

Average % Results in Top 2 Bands

  • This table displays the % of results in the top 2 bands in Reading and Numeracy at the school for the selected year.

Page 2 – Multiple Schools

% of Results in Top 2 Bands for Reading and Numeracy by Calendar Year

  • This line chart is identical to the chart on Page 1.
  • The only difference is that multiple schools can be selected and compared on the same chart. This is especially useful for directors.

Use the slicers to filter and analyse the data:

  • School Years
  • Executive Director Group
  • Network
  • School
  • Calendar Year
  • Enrolment Type Group
  • Enrolment Type
  • Gender

  • EAL/D

How can I use the Premier's Priority report support my school self assessment?

  • Analyse the change in % in the top 2 bands between years to determine the trend. This will support SEF elements Student Performance Measures and Assessment and Reporting.

What should I look for?

  • The charts can be used to show changes in the % of results in the top 2 bands over time.
