Acceptance of your applications
To assist with the smooth processing of your applications you must complete ALL steps of the application process on the same day for each child and the parent(s) joining the club. This includes completing the parent assistance form and holding a valid Working with Children Check with Point Leo SLSC and LSV listed as volunteer organisations. You should have already supplied the club with a photo of your children’s birth certificate or passport, if not please also do this when you submit your applications. This makes the processing of applications much easier for our volunteer Registrar. All of these items are compulsory and without them your memberships will NOT be accepted. You will get one request to complete a missing requirement and if it isn’t completed within one day of the request your memberships will be declined and offered to another child. We’re sorry if this seems a bit harsh but we have a long list of children who didn’t receive an offer of a place who we can offer your place to and we need to get memberships processed quickly so that we aren’t delayed in the planning for our program.
You will receive an auto generated email from email@example.com confirming your memberships when they have been approved/declined. Also where possible please complete your applications as soon as possible so that if you are having any problems we can sort them out well before the due date. Please DON’T wait until the due date to complete this process as if there is a problem that prevents the applications from being processed you risk losing your child’s place in the program.
Working With Children Check
It’s vital you get this right so please read the information carefully. Please also note that obtaining a new WWCC takes time and this will hold up the acceptance of your memberships so please provide a copy of your WWCC lodgement receipt showing that Point Leo and LSV are listed as volunteer organisations so that acceptance of your children’s memberships will not be delayed/declined. If you already have a WWCC the instructions on how to add Point Leo SLSC and LSV are detailed on the Point Leo SLSC Working with Children Policy and Information page. Please email a screen clip from your WWCC account showing that these organisations are listed on your WWCC. When you add these please make sure you press the submit button. Without this proof processing of your children’s memberships will be delayed/declined.
Don’t forget if you no longer wish to participate in our program please email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately and let us know so that we can offer your positions to other children on our waiting list.
If we don’t receive your applications by the due date or we haven’t received any contact from you in response to this email by the date specified in the email offer we will assume you are no longer interested in your children participating in the Nipper program and we will remove their names from our waiting list and offer the positions to other children.
Please, if you have any questions email email@example.com for clarification. A quick email from you will save a lot of time for everyone concerned. If you encounter any ‘error’ messages please also email firstname.lastname@example.org You will receive a reply to your email any time after 8pm on the day you send it.
Please DO NOT CONTACT LSV OR SLSA.
