Here at St Martin de Porres School we have a number of policies, processes and procedures in place to provide your children with a sense of belonging and to ensure their safety and wellbeing is nurtured.
Why is a Police Check required for Volunteers?
It is the policy and practice of the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide that all persons who have a responsibility through their role within the Archdiocese (whether paid or voluntary) and/or who have the potential to have one-on-one contact with children, undergo a DCSI Working With Children Clearance and Catholic Police Check. The check is used as part of the assessment process to determine a person's suitability for volunteering within the Archdiocese of Adelaide and also within associated organisations closely affiliated with the Catholic Archdiocese, therefore St Martin de Porres School.
Volunteers are required to complete the online Responding to Abuse and Neglect - Education and Care (RAN-EC) induction session which can be accessed at the following link (volunteers should always select 'Account User' as 'SA Catholic Schools')
Our volunteers must complete the above online training (the school will ask for a copy of the certificate of completion) and obtain a DCSI Working With Children Clearance and Catholic Police Clearance before volunteering at the School.
For more information about the processes please contact the School direct. All information obtained is kept in the strictest confidence.
