Loving All Our Neighbours


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:

  • Sharing skills and interests e.g. talking about their job, helping with activities in their area of expertise
  • Listening to children read and helping them with their work in the classroom - there are additional requirements for such volunteers: see below
  • Accompanying children on educational visits
  • Helping supervise breaks and lunchtimes
  • Making costumes for productions
  • Maintaining the school's gardens

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.

If you are thinking of becoming a volunteer in school, you should also be aware of our Privacy Notice which relates to Governors and Other Volunteers:

Volunteer: Role Specification

Regulated Activity

The majority of our roles - whether as paid employees or as unpaid volunteers - involve regulated activity.

Regulated activity means a person would be:

  • Responsible, on a regular basis in a school or college, for teaching, training, instructing, caring for or supervising children; or
  • Carrying out paid, or unsupervised unpaid, work regularly in a school or college where that work provides an opportunity for contact with children; or
  • Engaging in intimate or personal care or overnight activity, even if this happens only once and regardless of whether they are supervised or not

I​​​​​​t is an offence to apply for a role with us if an applicant is barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children.

Volunteer Enquiry

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.

Having spoken to the Headteacher about how you think you could help us by being a volunteer, please check the following job description and then complete the application form and return it to the School Office for the attention of the Headteacher. We look forward to working with you.
