Official Notice: 2011 annual reports from non-government schools

BOS 17/12

Who needs to read this notice:

Non-government school principals


All non-government schools are required to produce and publicly disclose a 2011 annual school report by 30 June 2012.

Section 3.10.1 of the Registered and Accredited Individual Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual and Section 5.10.1 of the Registration Systems and Member Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual (the Manuals) detail the annual reporting requirements.

Non-government schools are advised to refer to the relevant Manual. The most up-to-date Manuals can be accessed via the Board’s website.

In addition to publicly disclosing the 2011 annual report, non-government schools are required to submit an electronic copy of the report to the Board of Studies by 30 June 2012. The submission process is through the Board’s registration website (RANGS Online) using the school’s unique User ID and password. If you require assistance with the school’s User ID or password, or you need to apply for an online account, please contact Senior Registration Officer, George Kelen on (02) 9367 8280. RANGS Online is currently available to accept annual reports.

For schools belonging to a registration system the process for submitting an electronic annual report to the Board varies. Each system will advise its member schools of the process to be followed.

Non-government schools operating for the first time in 2012 are not required to produce or publicly disclose an annual report for the 2011 school year.

Please note that the revisions to the Manuals published in May 2012 (Official Notice 15/12) requiring annual reports to include information about a school’s anti-bullying policy take effect for reports on the 2012 school year to be submitted in 2013.
