Victorian Government School Performance Summary

School Report Format

The Victorian Government School Performance Summary has been introduced to give parents a clear overview of how government schools are performing in Victoria.

Each performance summary provides overall results of students and how the school compares with other Victorian government schools, taking into account its student intake.

Within the summary, parents can access:

  • student outcome results for the latest school year, as well as the last four years (where available) and a detailed breakdown of the result areas that were measured
  • school comparison data, that identifies whether a school, taking into account its students, is performing higher than, lower than, or broadly similar to other schools.

Each school has also provided a ‘What Our School Is Doing’ statement, which provides context for the data contained in each school’s performance summary and outlines the school's achievements and plans for the future.

School Annual Reports to the Community

All schools prepare an Annual Report to inform parents and the wider school community of the school's successes, activities and achievements throughout the year. The report also provides an opportunity to communicate and publicise the longer term directions for the school.

The annual report should be made available to parents by 30 June each year.

All Government School Performance Summaries and School Annual Reports to the Community are available on the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority (VRQA) State Register website.
