What is Duty of Care? Duty of Care means taking all care to avoid foreseeable risks.
Where Can I Find the Guidelines for the Safe Conduct of Sport and Physical Activity in Schools?
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.
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. teams.
We dont 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: 1. The person has appropriate accreditation 2. The principal acknowledges the person as the school coach 3. Appropriate screening and declaration forms completed. 4. 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!
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!
When I tried to book a venue, I was asked to provide a copy of the schools 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 ofIn 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: 1.
