Carers Profile

The Carer Profile report provides demographic information on primary carers for students in a school.  This includes all parents/carers listed as living in the same address as the student in the Application to enrol in a NSW Government school form.

Executive Directors and Directors of Public Schools can view all schools within their Principal Network.
