Dear parents, guardians and carers
Re: Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD)
Every year, the Australian government requires all schools in Australia to participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). The NCCD process requires schools to identify information already available in the school about supports provided to students with disability. These relate to legislative requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005, in line with the NCCD guidelines (2019). During Terms 2 and 3 Tintern Grammar collect and complies data to satisfy the NCCD.
Information provided about students to the Australian Government for the NCCD includes:
- year of schooling
- category of disability: physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional
- level of adjustment provided: support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive.
This information assists Tintern Grammar to:
- formally recognise the supports and adjustments provided to students with disability
- consider how we can strengthen the support of students with disability at our school
- develop shared practices so that we can review their learning programs in order to improve educational outcomes for students with disability.
The NCCD provides state and federal governments with the information they need to plan more broadly for the support of students with disability. This data is used to help allocate funding to schools for students with a disability.
If you have any questions about the NCCD, please contact the school.
