Code of conduct
· Earth Ed reserves the right to exclude any participant who impedes the delivery of a program or who acts in a way to put the safety and wellbeing of any other participant at risk
· Students are expected to follow instructions and stay on task, listen while others are speaking and work productively.
· Students are expected to respect the environment they are in, the materials and equipment they are working with, and be respectful of others at all times.
· Students are assumed to have signed a responsible use of technology/devices with their school, and are expected to use Earth Ed devices responsibly and as directed.
· Teachers are expected to actively participate in the program with their students.
· Teachers are expected to supervise students at all times, including session breaks.
· Teachers are responsible for ensuring student behaviour at all times.
· The teacher in charge or designated teacher of the excursion will carry a mobile phone and a first aid kit, and any required student medications.
· Schools must adhere to the DET staff/student ratio requirements for excursions (minimum of two staff, plus ratio requirement).
· Teachers acknowledge that excursions outside the school require the teacher to fully comply with DET guidelines and bring with it an increased duty of care. It is a teacher’s responsibility to be aware of these guidelines and remain the person designated with duty of care. Care and responsibility of students remains the responsibility of the class teacher at all times. Be aware that an incursion with an external provider does not absolve supervision duties of the teacher, including first aid duties. A teacher must be present at all times and remain the person designated with duty of care responsibilities.
