Seacliff Primary School is lucky to have the support of many parents/grandparents and community members in volunteering their time to support their children while enrolled at the school.
Volunteering opportunities include providing classroom /reading support, accompanying students on excursions, coaching sports teams, assisting in the library, helping our friendly Team Canteen and supporting many fundraising events.
ALL VOLUNTEERS ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN IN AT ADMINISTRATION, SCAN THE QR CODE AND SIGN OUT UPON LEAVING THE SITE
Any person volunteering at the school is required the following:-
RESPONDING TO RISKS OF HARM ABUSE AND NEGLECT – Education and Care (RRHAN-EC)
As of 1st July 2021, all volunteers who provide ongoing assistance must have undertaken a RRHAN-EC induction session for volunteers. The RRHAN-EC induction outlines volunteers’ child protection responsibilities and provides guidelines on protective practices. The RRHAN-EC session for volunteers is available via an online session. A certificate of participation is provided when completed and can be forwarded to administration at email@example.com The certificate is transferable across sites. To access the Department for Education’s online training please use the following link https://www.plink.sa.edu.au/pages/signup.jsf
WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECK (WWCC)
From 1 July 2019, people working or volunteering with children in South Australia must, by law, have a valid clearance. WWCCs replace all other types of child-related employment screening checks. A WWCC will be valid for five years and if a WWCC is only being used for volunteering purposes, the volunteer will receive it for free.
You don’t need a Working with Children Check if you:
- work for SA Police or the Australian Federal Police
- hold a current S.A Teachers registration
- are a parent or guardian volunteering with your own child (e.g. at school) and do not have close personal contact with other children
Working with Children checks are required for:
- parents or guardians attending overnight camps
- sports coaches
- parent volunteers (if their own child is not involved in the service/activity)
- Governing Council members
- fundraising events
- land care and recycling
Once you have received your Working with Children Check clearance and RRHAN-EC certificate please forward a copy of both to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the student or adult within the school that you are associated with and your volunteer role.
