Dear NSW Department of Education,
My children’s school has advised that it is prohibited from disclosing whether any children in his class have informed them they have Covid under guidance from the NSW Government. They have also advised that they are not permitted to disclose the number of cases in a year.
Please provide all correspondence and guidance that has been given to public schools in relation to how they should report covid cases and any restrictions applicable to them.
Please find attached the following documents for you to complete in order
to request access to information held by the Department of Education:
1. GIPA Access application form;
2. GIPA Authority form (to be filled in if you are acting on
behalf of another person or a child over the age of 12 years); and
3. GIPA Information for applicants – which contains information
about the process.
Please complete the form and submit it to [email address], together
with the $30 application fee.
If you have any further questions, please contact the Right to Access Unit
by telephone on 7814 3525 or via email at [email address].
