Volunteer Requirements - Volunteer Package available from School Office
It is a Department for Education requirement that all volunteers need both a child related Working With Children Check (WWCC) clearing you to work with children and training in “Responding to Abuse and Neglect for Volunteers” RAN. You will need to present both the letter of clearance WWCC and the printed certificate from the Responding to Abuse and Neglect RAN Training to the school’s front office before volunteering on site.
A Child related WWCC Clearance is easily obtained by contacting the school to begin an online application. Forms are available from the office. The school will be notified once the clearance has been processed.
Only one clearance is issued to a person. If you already have one, email or drop a copy in to the school office for our records. These clearances are valid for 3 years from the date on the clearance.
