Annual Privacy Reminder

Our school collects, uses, discloses and stores student and parent personal information for standard school functions or where permitted by law, as stated in the Schools’ Privacy Policy

Please take time to remind yourself of the school’s collection statement, found on our website [add link to your school’s collection statement].

For more information about privacy, see: Schools’ Privacy Policy – information for parents. This information also available in nine community languages.

Further information

Before publishing the reminder, schools need to ensure they have made the relevant current collection statement available on their website:

It is essential to communicate with students and their parents about how their personal information will be handled in the school environment. One of the ways schools do this is by using collection statements (sometimes referred to as privacy statements or collection notices).

Using these collection statements is a critical activity in applying the Schools’ Privacy Policy

All schools are required to adopt the Department’s standardised Schools’ Privacy Policy and must post a link to the policy on the school’s public facing website. For step-by-step instructions on implementing the policy and how to use supporting resources, see: Privacy
