Performance and achievements


In 2016, Hatton Vale State School continued its focus on setting high expectations for behaviour to enable all students to learn in a safe, supported school environment.  This has been a key priority from our Annual Implementation Plan over the past three years and was a major focus for our school community to ensure parents and students felt valued, respected and welcome in our school.  The success in this area is reflected in our reduction of major negative behaviours reducing from 20% in 2013 to less then 1% in term four of 2015. We have maintained this success for the entirety of 2016 and now replicating in semester 1 of 2017.


The introduction of Positive Behaviours for Learning has further supported the need to celebrate students who constantly demonstrate our core behaviour expectations with free and frequent acknowledgements. Weekly staff explicitly demonstrated school wide expectations of Be a Learner-Be Responsible-Be Respectful- Be Safe on parade and in classrooms.  


In 2016 Hatton Vale State School experienced its most successful year of NAPLAN testing with continual improvements in 9 of the ten areas of Reading, Spelling, Punctuation, Grammar, Writing and Numeracy in years 3 and 5 to at and above National Minimum Standards.

With further Professional Development of staff and the increase of educational innovations supported by government funding under Greater Results Guarantee and Investing 4 Success we anticipate this to continue to trend upwards in 2017.

In 2017 our three key priorities for success are sharp and narrow and derive directly from our school improvement review.

2017 Key Priorities
1.      The explicit teaching of reading with the implementation of a whole school reading program.
2.      The continuation of Explicit Instruction and capacity building of teacher knowledge and skills.
        3.      The continued engagement of the Hatton Vale community to boost student attendance and retention.

A to E Reporting

In 2016 it was our goal to have greater than 80% of students achieving a “C” standard or higher in English, Math and Science.

Below the table illustrates our performance.

Like all schools Attendance is a major focus for our success. The table below highlights the improvements made for attendance over the past 5 years. Remembering, that if students are not at school, we cannot deliver them the educational opportunities.
