Playground supervision is an essential element in staff’s duty of care. It is now clearly established that in supervising students, staff’s duty of care is one of positive action. It is important to note that students are usually less constrained and more prone to accident and injury in the playground than in a more closely supervised classroom.
The staff at Subiaco Primary School are rostered for duty, and attend designated duty areas throughout recess and lunch.
Morning playground supervision is provided from 8.30am, to keep students safe who arrive early. Students are required to assemble and wait on the steps outside the staffroom until formal supervision commences at 8.30am.
Please note, there is no community access to the Year 1, Kindy and PP playgrounds prior to 8.30am in the morning and after 3.30pm in the afternoon.
