How you can help the school
We are always keen to receive help from parents, carers and other adults who wish to gain experience of volunteering in a primary school environment. Those who are interested in helping in school, and have the necessary free time, should speak to the School Office to arrange an appointment with the Headteacher or use the contact form below.
People can help in many different ways, including:
Volunteers in school are all checked by the Government’s Disclosure and Barring Service in line with child protection guidelines.
As volunteers in the classroom can have a significant impact on children's attainment and progress - both positive and negative - it is important that they have good standards of English and Mathematics. Consequently, classroom volunteers will be asked to verify that they have at least a GCSE - or equivalent - in English and Maths.

It is an offence to apply for a role with us if an applicant is barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.
If you are thinking of volunteering to work alongside our children, you must first discuss the idea with the Headteacher. Please use this form to make initial contact. Alternatively, call the School Office on 01628 622596 to make an appointment. Thank you.
