Performance and achievements

We have very high expectations for each child at Ascot State School.  Education is highly valued by our parent community who have high aspirations for each child. 
Our vision is for happy students learning together to grow and succeed. We know the importance of the psychology of the child in improving academic performance.  Often termed motivational or non-cognitive factors, the psychology of the student includes students’ beliefs about themselves, their feelings about school, or their habits of self-control.  Whilst many schools focus on the curriculum, the academic content and students’ intellectual processing of that material, there is a wealth of research that clearly shows that this is insufficient. 
Our students achieve extremely well in literacy and numeracy and in the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).  The percentage of students in the upper two bands in NAPLAN reading continues to improve with 87% in Year 3 in 2018.  This is testament to the highly-skilled and dedicated teaching team who ensure every child is making at least a year’s progress in their learning. 
The Ascot Music Program is highly valued and continually achieves excellence in local competitions.  In 2018, the Senior Concert Band was awarded gold at Fanfare and participated in the Finals.  They went on to be awarded platinum at the Music Fest. 
Students also have the opportunity to participate in a myriad of programs including student council from Year 4; playground buddy system;  debating; optiminds;  Tech Girls;  STEAM week activities; Lego League;  Art Club;  Book Week competitions;  Ascot’s Got Talent;  Maths Enrichment;  Chess;  Before-School Reading Program;  City Cluster based student development programs such as Mini-Thinkers.   
We pride ourselves on offering ‘something for everyone’.
