What is the SDP?

Brief overview of the School Data Portal.

All schools and kura are encouraged to use the School Data Portal to submit any planning and reporting documents quickly and securely that cannot be submitted to the Ministry via their Student Management System (SMS).

Use the School Data Portal to submit the following school or kura documents;


  • School Charter
  • Roll Returns
  • Attendance Survey
  • RTLit Survey (for RTLit host schools)
  • Analysis of Variance
  • National Standards NAG2A (b) commentary
  • National Standards NAG2A (c) data


If your school or kura use a Student Management System (SMS) to record and report on your National Standards data, you might be able to submit your summary data to the Ministry directly from your SMS.

Use the School Data Portal only if your SMS doesn’t support direct submission. Contact your SMS Vendor for more information.
