Welcome to the Information Services Web Site
Information Services manages the collection and reporting of statistical information relating to schools, students and staff throughout the WA education system.
The area manages a number of important data collections, the main one being the census of public, Catholic and Independent schools. The census occurs each year in February and August. Staff data for public schools is collected in February and August from the Department's payroll system.
A selection of statistical reports produced by this area, which involve student, school and staff details for both the public and private sectors are made available here. Also available is a list of school updates such as new schools, any proposed schools and schools that are closing.
The Department conducts a student census at the beginning of each semester. Census is the broad term used for the coordinated collection of various data at a particular point in time. In 2017, the Semester 1 student census will be on Friday 17 February. The date used to calculate student's age is 1 July 2017.
Information about public and private Schools in Western Australia is updated regularly. Schools are closed, new ones are built and schools amalgamate. Schools contact details also change such as telephone, fax, e-mail and internet addresses.
