Nationally Consistent Collection of Data02/05/2019
Every year, all schools in Australia 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).
Information that Catherine McAuley College provides 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 Catherine McAuley College to:
- formally recognise the supports and adjustments provided to students with disability
- consider how we can strengthen the support of students with disability
- develop shared practices so that we can review our 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.
Further information about the NCCD can be found on the NCCD Portal (https://www.nccd.edu.au). A fact sheet is attached for those wishing for more information.
If you have any questions about the NCCD, please contact the school.
