Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability


It is a government requirement for all schools to participate annually in The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD).

The NCCD collects data about school students with disability who are receiving adjustments across Australia in a consistent, reliable and systematic way. It enables schools, education authorities and governments to better understand the needs of students with disability and how they can be best supported at school. (

Information gathered is used:

  • as an evidence base, to give teachers, schools and sectors information about students with disability and the level of educational adjustment being provided
  • to inform policy development and future planning to better equip schools and education authorities to support students with disability
  • to improve understanding of the requirements and responsibilities of school teams and the broader community under the DDA and the Standards
  • to capture the work of schools under the obligations of the DDA and the Standards, allowing students with disability to access and participate in education on the same basis as other students
  • to highlight the individual needs of each student with disability by focusing on the level of educational support provided to them at school.  (

Students’ personal details are de-identified as a part of the data collection. Please contact Leanne Carr (Inclusive Education Coordinator) if you have any questions about the NCCD.
