NSW DE - Government School Locations and Enrollments Master Dataset 2017

The master dataset contains comprehensive information for all government schools in NSW. Data items include school locations, latitude and longitude coordinates, school type, student enrolment numbers, electorate information, contact details and more. Please note the following: Student enrolment numbers are based on the census of government school students undertaken on the first Friday of August 2017.

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data.
  • School information, such as addresses and contact details, are updated regularly as required, and are the most current source of information.
  • Data is suppressed for indigenous and language backgrounds other than English (LBOTE) percentages where student numbers are equal to, or less than five.
  • National Schools Collection (NSSC) out of scope schools will not have an enrolment figure.
  • NSSC and LBOTE figures are updated annually in March.
  • Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA) values are updated every April with the previous year's ICSEA values. The master dataset is currently displaying 2016 figures. Small schools, Schools for Specific Purposes (SSPs) and Senior Secondary schools do not have their ICSEA values published by The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA).
  • Following the introduction of part-time study in secondary schools in 1993, student enrolments are generally reported in full-time equivalent units (FTE). The FTE for students studying less than 10 units, the minimum workload, is determined by the formula: 0.1 x the number of units studied and represented as a proportion of the full-time enrolment of 1.0 FTE.
  • Norfolk Island Central School (NICS) is not a NSW government school. NICS is operated by the Australian government. The NSW Department of Education provides school education services under an agreement with the Australian government.
