Parent/Carer Volunteers

Volunteering in School

We believe that the involvement of parents and carers in childrens education is vital and we encourage active participation in many ways.  Some parents come in to school to help with a variety of tasks such as cooking, DT, sewing and especially reading and usually work with individuals or small groups in specific classes.  Other parents help when the children are taken on educational visits outside school.  If you would like to volunteer, please approach the school office or see Miss Loveridge for further information.

What kind of activities might you be engaged in?

We might ask you to become involved in a variety of activities such as:-

Sharing books

Making things

Cooking

Sewing

Theme related studies

Coming with us on visits

Sometimes just being there is what is needed!

We have a volunteering agreement and carry out a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and a disqualification by association check on all staff ad volunteers who have regular contact with children.  All schools need to hold a register of the checks undertaken.  In order for you to work in school as a volunteer, you will need to provide references and complete a DBS online check.

We will help you get the process started.  Please be assured that all information will be treated in the strictest confidence and that these checks are done only in the best interests and safety of the children.  Please contact Miss Loveridge regarding the checks.
