Details of how to register students are provided in the updated Data Procedures Manual 2018, with links to assist schools using Reporting to Parents, MAZE, and Excel. There is also a separate Student Registration Procedures Manual 2018 – Primary Students found at https://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/349641/Student-Registration-Procedures-Manual-2018-Primary-Students.pdf to assist primary schools with creating and uploading their Student Registration and Demographic File (SRGDG).
Schools are requested to include their school code in any correspondence.
Western Australian Student Number (WASN) requests for 2019
All current students in Western Australia should have been allocated a Western Australian Student Number (WASN), and be registered with the School Curriculum and Standards. This number remains with the student throughout their school life. Schools need to recognise the importance of the WASN to avoid duplication of records and maintain continuity of student data.
From 8 October 2018, schools will only be able to request WASNs through the Student Information Record System (SIRS) for Kindergarten students commencing in 2019. If a student other than Kindergarten arrives at your school from another WA school, please check to see if they have a WASN first using the ‘Search for WASN’ process – explained in ‘How to Search for WA Student Numbers in SIRS’ in this circular.
If you cannot locate a number, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org and give details of the student’s legal surname, legal first name, date of birth and academic year. It is also useful to include your school code in any correspondence. Numbers will be sent back if the student already has one allocated and new numbers requested and generated by the system for those students without a number.
All secondary schools with a Year 7 intake can send a complete list (spreadsheet) of Year 7 students entering their school, including the student’s legal surname, legal first name and date of birth and we will look up the numbers on their behalf.
A reminder that details of how to register students can be found in the Student Registration Procedures Manual 2018 – Primary Students found at PDFhttps://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/349641/Student-Registration-Procedures-Manual-2018-Primary-Students.PDF opens in new window with links to assist schools using Integris (RTP), Civica Maze, and Excel. There is also a Guide to uploading Student Registration and Demographic (SRGDG) file found at https://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/349636/GUIDE-TO-UPLOADING-STUDENT-REGISTRATION-AND-DEMOGRAPHIC-FILE.pdf and some online training videos found at https://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/sirs-info/primary-schools.
