For parents/guardians of students:
2020 Student Residential Address and Other Information collection notice
This notice is from the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills, and Employment (the department), to advise you that the department has requested that your child’s school provide a ‘statement of addresses’, in accordance with the Australian Education Regulation 2013 (Cth) (Regulation).
A statement of addresses contains the following information about each student at the school:
- Student residential address (not student names)
- Student level of education (i.e. whether the student is a primary or secondary student)
- Student boarding school status (i.e. whether the student is boarding or a day student)
- Names and residential addresses of students’ parent(s) and/or guardian(s)
Schools generate a record number for each student for the purposes of this collection, which is also provided to the department.
Purpose of the collection
This collection is routinely used to inform Commonwealth school education policy, and to help ensure that Commonwealth funding arrangements for non-government schools are based on need, and are fair and transparent.
The information collected in the statement of addresses will be used to inform school funding calculations. It is combined with data held by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to calculate the estimated capacity of a school community to contribute to the schools’ operating costs (capacity to contribute). Australian Government funding to non-government schools takes this estimated capacity to contribute into account.
