Community use of school facilities

The department encourages schools to make their facilities available for use by the community when not required for school purposes. The following resources support schools and community users.

The Community Use of School Facilities policy outlines the appropriate uses of school facilities and responsibilities of department staff in sharing these with the community.

The Sharing our facilities toolkit is a collection of resources for school principals and community users to help them meet work health and safety, legal, and procurement requirements.

The community use of school facilities online management system helps schools manage bookings and applications for the use of school facilities. It helps schools create and track applications and agreements with community users. School principals are automatically registered as system users. The system allows principals to provide access to nominated staff.

For any questions about these resources, contact the Policy Coordination and Review team.
