School and student information is accessed by ACARA from numerous government and non-government agencies, as well as directly from some non-government schools. When we contact a school to request student background information, we are required to provide a Privacy notice for distribution to students' families. The notice explains what kind of data we request from non-government schools and how the data are managed. A copy of the notice can be downloaded using the links below; it has also been translated into 21 community languages.
