Pre-primary to Year 10 Achievements Collection

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) has been developing the Student Records Management System (SRMS) to facilitate the collection of Pre-primary to Year 10 (P–10) achievements, as required by the 2012 amendment to the School Curriculum and Standards Authority Act 1997.

To date, the Student Information Records System (SIRS) has only been able to collect Kindergarten to Year 12 (K–12) registrations, and Years 11 and 12 enrolments and achievements, whereas the SRMS will also have the capacity to collect P–10 achievements.

Over the past few years, the Authority has been communicating to schools through the Roadshow and circulars about the impending collection of P–10 achievements, which should commence by the end of 2023 and beginning of 2024.

The Authority has been working with the software developers at the Department of Education Western Australia (the Department) and Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA), to set up a system/sector-level collection of P–10 achievements data.

We have conducted a pilot of some system/sector-level P–10 achievements data. From late December 2022 to February 2023, we will continue a trial of the system/sector-level upload of all the Department and CEWA data.

In 2022, we conducted a pilot upload of P‒10 achievements with independent schools. From late December 2022 to February 2023, we will continue a trial with independent schools on an optional basis. User guides will be provided to trial participants.

P‒10 achievements resources

The Pre-primary to Year 10: Teaching, Assessing and Reporting Policy (https://k10outline.scsa.wa.edu.au/home/policy/teaching-assessing-and-reporting-policy) sets out the minimum mandatory requirements for curriculum planning, assessment and reporting on student achievement.

The development of the SRMS has required that we establish learning area and context codes, which will now be the standard required for use across all Western Australian schools to facilitate data uploads. This is similar to the course codes and endorsed program codes used for senior secondary.

To help schools prepare for the commencement of P–10 achievements collection in 2023, please refer to the following resources:

User guides will be made available over the coming months.
