The forms in the Enrolment Forms booklet ask for personal information about the student, family members and others that provide care for them. The main purpose for collecting this information is so that CSC can register the student and allocate staff and resources to provide for their educational and support needs.
Health information is asked for so that staff at CSC can properly care for the student. This includes information about any medical condition or disability the student may have, and any medication they may rely on while at CSC, any known allergies and contact details of the student’s doctor. CSC depends on all relevant health information being provided because withholding some health information may put the student’s health at risk.
CSC requires information about all parents, guardians or carers so that we can take account of family arrangements. Family Court Orders setting out any access restrictions and parenting plans should be made available to CSC.
Please tell us as soon as possible about any changes to these arrangements. Please do not hesitate to contact the Principal at CSC, if you would like to discuss, in strict confidence, any matters relating to family arrangements.
These are people that CSC may need to contact in an emergency. Please ensure that the people named are aware that they have been nominated as emergency contacts and agree to their details being provided to CSC.
Student background information
This includes information about a person’s country of birth, Aboriginality, language spoken at home and parent occupation. This information is collected so that CSC receives appropriate resource allocations for our students. It is also used by the Department of Education and Training (DET) to plan for future educational needs in Victoria. Some information is sent to Commonwealth Government agencies for monitoring, reporting, planning and resource allocation.
All of this information is kept strictly confidential and the DET will not otherwise disclose the information to others without your consent or as required by law.
An explanation of parent / guardian occupation groups is provided in the enrolment details section.
This information is required to enable CSC to process the student’s enrolment.
Updating your records
Please let CSC know if any information needs to be changed by sending updated information to the CSC Office. During the student’s time with CSC we will also send home copies of enrolment information held by us. Please use this opportunity to let us know of any changes.
Access to the student records held by CSC
In most circumstances the student can access records about them that are held by CSC. Please contact the Principal to arrange this.
Sometimes access to certain information, such as information provided by someone else, may require a Freedom of Information request. We will advise you if this is required and tell you how you can do this. If you have any concerns about the confidentiality of this information please contact the Principal.
The DET can also provide you with more detailed information about privacy policies that govern the collection and use of information requested on this form. Please call the Department’s Privacy Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: (03) 8688 7967
