St Brigid’s Catholic Learning Community is committed to providing a safe environment for all students and young people and takes active steps to protect them against abuse. To achieve this the school has developed and actively enforces Child Safety Strategies to ensure that any person involved in ‘child connected work’ is aware of their obligations & responsibilities for ensuring the safety of all children under their care.
Working With Children’s Checks
Working with Children’s Checks (WWCC) will be required by all non-teaching staff, volunteers, members of the clergy and contractors engaged by the school. WWCC screen an individual’s criminal record and professional conduct, acting as a mechanism for identifying those individuals who pose a risk to child safety.
A current WWCC (within 5 years) is required for all non-teaching staff, volunteers, members of the clergy and contractors and a copy must be provided to the school Administration Officer prior to being authorised to undertake ‘Child Connected Works’. A member of the Leadership Team will regularly monitor the currency of WWCC.
Any member of the school community that wishes to participate in ‘Child Connected Work’ must provide the school with a copy of their current WWCC prior to being authorised to do so.
St Brigid’s Catholic Learning Community ensures the currency of all WWCC via the maintenance of a WWCC tab located within the School’s Compliance Register. The currency of WWCC is regularly monitored.
