Accessing records, reports or timetables
You need to submit a written request to the principal to access records held by a school. You can also request to have your records amended.
Some documents like school reports and timetables may already be available—check your school's website before making a written request. School contact details are available by phoning 13 QGOV (13 74 68) or searching the schools directory.
To help complete your request:
- review the types of documents held in schools (DOC, 270KB) to see what is kept, and who can apply for access
- find your school’s contact details by phoning 13 QGOV (13 74 68) or searching the schools directory
- read about access to records held in schools—this procedure helps principals process information access requests from the public.
Principals will respond to your request within 10 school days of receiving it.
Charges may apply if you request access to records that do not contain your personal information (or of the person on whose behalf you have made the request).
Contact your school if you need more information about accessing records. School contact details are available by phoning 13 QGOV (13 74 68) or searching the schools directory.
Information about student timetables and exam timetables may be published on your school website, or in your school newsletter.
If not, you can talk to your child or your child’s teacher to get copies of timetables.

This information can help you make an informed decision about your child's school.
