Rockingham Elementary


Student safety is paramount

We recognize our responsibility to ensure that all students attending our schools are protected by taking reasonable precautions to screen volunteers who may be working with students without direct supervision of staff. In accordance with HRCE’s Student Protection Policy, prior to volunteering with the Halifax Regional School Board, all volunteers will provide:

A completed Child Abuse Register - Request for Search Form, which can be found here

A certified and true copy of a Criminal Records Check with Vulnerable Sector Check available here, from your local Police or RCMP detachment or through online organizations endorsed by Nova Scotia law enforcement agencies
Please note: the Child Abuse Register Search and Criminal Records Check must be issued in the three months preceding volunteering and updated every three years.



When setting up a BackCheck account, click on the Vulnerable Sector Check.  That is what is needed to volunteer within HRCE.
