Working with Vulnerable People Card
Current Education Department Policy requires that all volunteers at the school – including in the classroom, on an excursion, in the canteen or at a fundraising event – must hold a Working with Vulnerable People Card (WWVP). If you do not currently have a card and would like to help at the school, we recommend you apply now – the process is easy and costs $19.80 for volunteers for 3 years. Please visit https://bit.ly/2Xs06Im to apply.
The school office needs to keep a copy of all cards, so once you get one, or if you already have a card and haven't supplied a copy to the school office, please can you either email a scan or photograph of the card to : email@example.com or drop into the office and a staff member can take a copy of the card. Remember when your card expires to supply a copy of the renewed card to the school office.
