31 Common Questions

32 Duty of Care means taking all care to avoid foreseeable risks.
What is ‘Duty of Care’? Duty of Care means taking all care to avoid foreseeable risks.

33 Where Can I Find the Guidelines for the Safe Conduct of Sport and Physical Activity in Schools?

34 Parents should note that children
Are students covered for medical expenses and ambulance if they get injured playing sport? Parents should note that children participate in the school sport program ‘at their own risk’. This includes PE lessons, school sport and representative sport. All students are covered for serious injury (such as permanent loss/use of a prescribed faculty/part of the body) and death under the Supplementary Injuries Benefits Scheme funded by the NSW Government. However, medical expenses exceeding the amount covered by MEDICARE, for injuries such as broken limbs, teeth etc are not covered unless parents have taken out private health insurance. ie. The only way a claim can be made against the DET is through litigation (suing for neglect of duty). Litigation would be against the DET and not the individual teacher.

35 Arrangements can be made to attend trials
I have a student who wants to participate in a state sport not offered by Western. How can they do this? Arrangements can be made to attend trials at a neighbouring region such as North West, Hunter or Riverina. Alternatively, some sports have Conveners teams.

36 We don’t have accredited coaches for our school teams on staff
We don’t have accredited coaches for our school teams on staff. Can we use non-teachers as coaches? Non teacher coaches may be used for school or Regional teams providing: The person has appropriate accreditation The principal acknowledges the person as the school coach Appropriate screening and declaration forms completed. A teacher accompanies the team and is responsible for management of the team (and Duty of Care). The non teacher would have the same cover by the DET as a teacher!

37 But only in the sports of swimming and
Can an 8 year old student in year two participate in the Representative School Sport Program? Yes But only in the sports of swimming and athletics. There are designated events for 8 year olds in each sport. It should be noted that it is a school decision to allow such students the opportunity of competing!

38 When I tried to book a venue, I was asked to provide a copy of the school’s Public Liability Insurance. What do I do? Recommendation is to provide the following wording on school letterhead: “In support of the application from (name of convener) for the (name of trial), the New South Wales Department of Education and Training is a Self Insurer and is prepared to give indemnity under the following terms: The Education Department and its teachers owe a duty of care to all students in its charge to protect them against the risk of injury that is foreseeable. That duty of care is owed whenever student/teacher relationships exist and likewise when supervision is provided. The Department of Education and Training will indemnify the (name of council) in respect of any personal injury to any student caused by the negligence of the Department of Education and Training or its servants arising out of its use of your property.
