Key information for parents/carers

Independent Schools Australia does not have authority over Independent schools and is not the governing body for any Independent school. Independent Schools Australia advocate on behalf of the Independent school sector and represent the interests of the sector at a national level in relation to national policy issues and Australian Government funding, they do not advocate for individual schools, governing bodies, families or students.

If an issue arises, parents are encouraged to discuss it directly with the relevant teacher or school leader.

Unlike government and Catholic schools, most Independent schools do not have a centralised authority like a Catholic Diocese or government Department of Education to govern their operations. While some Independent schools do belong to school systems, most are governed by their own school board or school council. For information about a school’s board or council please contact the school directly.

Independent schools have policies and procedures in place for many areas of day-to-day school management that can be available to parents and carers. They are usually found on the school’s website or copies can be requested from the school.
