What is the NCCD?

What is the NCCD?

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) takes place every year.

The NCCD is a collection that counts:

  • The number of school students receiving an adjustment of ‘help’ due to disability
  • The level of adjustment they are receiving to access education on the same basis as other students.

Students are counted in the NCCD if they receive ongoing adjustments at school due to disability.  This ‘help’ allows them to access education on the same basis as a child without disability.  The NCCD uses the definition of disability in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.

Schools provide this information to education authorities.  As part of this process, Balcatta SHS will be collecting this data next week.

For more information regarding NCCD, see the Fact Sheet for Parents, Guardians and Carers
