National Report on Schooling in Australia

The annual National Report on Schooling in Australia is published by ACARA on behalf of Australian education ministers.

The most recent report, the National Report on Schooling in Australia 2020, is available here.

The report addresses the 11 areas of commitment to action specified in the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration, describes the national policy and reporting context for school education, and reports on nationally agreed key performance measures (KPMs) for schooling. It also provides statistics on school and staff numbers, student enrolments and school funding.

The National Report on Schooling in Australia data portal

The National Report on Schooling in Australia data portal, which complements the national report on schooling, is updated with the most recent data available.

The data portal gives interactive access to a wide range of data on Australian schooling, including general statistics on enrolments and funding, and data on the agreed KPMs. In most cases, the portal allows readers to view and download data at the national level, but also by state and territory, by school sector, by calendar year and by other breakdowns such as gender and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander status.
