Garda Vetting for volunteers

Hi everyone, Our school thrives on volunteering. Some parents volunteer from time-to-time and others have the time to come in regularly. If you volunteer on an ongoing basis or expect to do so over the next few years you will now have to undergo vetting. We do not want to say no to a volunteer due to delays in vetting so we are happy to arrange vetting for prospective volunteers.

The process is now very straightforward.

1. Contact Sally by email ( to indicate that you wish to be vetted, what you are doing, or intend to do, and how often. Occasional helpers do not have to be vetted but volunteers who come in regularly to help in a variety of ways will need vetting.

2.  You will receive a response with vetting documents and our policy attached. Sally will have to meet you to review your form and to verify your identity. This is then sent to Educate Together and they follow up from there with electronic vetting.

3. The outcome is posted to the school and we can let you know at that stage that you are covered.
