Performance and achievements

Our Improvement Agenda
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has identified our school as having demonstrated substantially above average gain in Reading achievement, as measured by NAPLAN.  We were identified as a Success School in 2015, so it's positive to be acknowledged again for continuous improvement over time in student learning outcomes.
Sandgate has been very successful in increasing the relative gain achieved for students who have taken consecutive NAPLAN tests at the same school (for example, in year 3 in 2015 and in year 5 in 2017).
Student gain is a way to measure the impact a school has had on student progress.  The gain made by our students is as a result of the teaching capabilities of the teaching staff through a consistent whole-school approach to the explicit teaching of Reading and comprehension.
