Distribution of materials to schools
Information for external organisations wishing to distribute information items to schools.
The Department will distribute information items to schools on behalf of external organisations if they
- have direct educational value
- have a clear community or health benefit
- are non-political
- are not advertising material.
Where possible, material is distributed by email through the Infostream service. Submission guidelines include details of allowable formats and distribution to government and non-government schools.
You can tell a good news story about your school or Child and Family Learning Centre (CFLC) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include contact and story information, as well as images, in your email. You also need to complete a Photo Consent Form.
If you have a question about schools or CFLCs you can:
- See the parent and carer tab on the Department of Education website.
- Call the school or CFLC.
- Fill out an online Enquiry Form
We aim to answer complaints in an accountable, transparent, quick, and fair way. For more information read the Making a Complaint factsheet and Complaints Management at a Glance. For complaints about schools and CFLCs use the below three stages:
Early Resolution Stage
The first step is to take the complaint to your school or CFLC. This might mean talking to a teacher or other staff member. If the complaint is not resolved, you can then make a time to speak to the Principal. A complaint can also be made by filling out an online Complaint Form – Early Resolution.
Internal Review Stage
If you are not happy after the Early Resolution Stage, you can ask for an Internal Review by Learning Services by filling out the online Internal Review Form.
External Review Stage
If you are not happy after the Internal Review you can contact Ombudsman Tasmania (phone: 1800 001170).
If you have made an enquiry or complaint you should cooperate with the process, be respectful and act in good faith at all times. For more information refer to Enquiry and Complaint Behaviour Expectations.
