National Goals for Schooling Questionnaire
For new students only
Under the Federal Government, as part of the National Goals for Schooling in the Twenty-First Century, all Australian schools are required to ask questions related to the gender, country of birth, language spoken at home and indigenous status of each child as well as the educational qualifications, occupations and main language spoken by parents.
The primary purpose of national reporting is to improve the educational outcomes of our young people by informing the Australian public, and especially the education community and parents, about progress towards achieving the National Goals for Schooling in the Twenty-First Century. The National Goals specifically state that students’ outcomes from schooling should be ‘free from the effects of negative forms of discrimination based on sex, language, culture and ethnicity, religion or disability; and of differences arising from students’ socioeconomic background or geographic location’; and that ‘the learning outcomes of educationally disadvantaged students [should] improve and, over time, match those of other students’.
This information, along with all other information contained in this form, will remain confidential, subject to PLC Sydney's 'Collection of Personal Data', which can be reviewed here.
