The Privacy Act 1988 has applied to our schools since 2001 and has had several amendments over the last 13 years, most recently in March 2014. The Act governs the collection, use, storage, access and disclosure of personal information by organisations such as schools and Catholic Education WA.

The NCEC has updated its Privacy Compliance Manual to incorporate and explain the recent amendments to the Act in its application to schools.

The Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia has also amended the Standard Collection Notice to be used by schools as well as the Photograph/Video Permission Form.

If you have any questions about the application of the Act, please use the contact form below.
