The following forms and documents may be required by parents and/or home educators.

  • Exemption application

    Students in the following categories may be considered for formal exemption from the testing program:

    • Students with a language background other than English, who arrived from overseas and have been attending school in Australia for less than a year before the test, should be given the opportunity to participate in testing, but may be exempted.
    • Students with significant intellectual disability and/or those with significant co-existing conditions which severely limit their capacity to participate in the tests may be exempted from sitting the national tests. This is determined after consultation has occurred between the principal and the relevant parent/carer, and it has been established that the student is not able to access the tests with the allowable adjustments for disability.
  • Withdrawal application

    Students may be withdrawn from the testing program by their parent/carer. This is a matter for consideration by individual parents/carers in consultation with their child’s school. Withdrawals are intended to address issues such as religious beliefs and philosophical objections to testing.

    Use this form to withdraw a student from the NAPLAN tests this year.
