Student Welfare and Supervision
|08 October 2012|
The Department and its teachers owe a duty of care to all students to protect them against the risk of injury which is foreseeable. Sport and physical activity programs must be designed to ensure that the maximum level of supervision and safety is provided. The Department has banned a number of sports / activities where this cannot be guaranteed.
Currently the following activities must not be undertaken:
A review of sporting activities that are banned in school sport and physical activity programs including those sports and physical activities identified as high risk is carried out as circumstances warrant.
Principals considering authorising activities not included in the Sport Specific Section of the Safe Conduct Guidelines must implement the risk management assessment as outlined in the Principal Endorsed Activities section.
