Helping in School

We would welcome your help with the following:

  • listen to reading during school time or support the class teacher with group activities.
  • volunteer to help with clubs.
  • help support and organise fund raising activities.
  • attend our Parents Staff Association meetings to plan social events and to offer ideas for raising money and how to spend it on the most beneficial items for our school.
  • become a class representative - this involves organising helpers for various activities and assisting the class teacher with the communication of messages and suggestions.
  • coming along on school trips - a day out for a fun and educational trip where you may be asked to supervise a small group.
  • helping with swimming lessons i.e. supervising children to get changed and walking to and from the classroom.
  • gardening & supporting children in the 'Living Classroom'
  • library book changing

Most activities will require a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check to be carried out and all volunteers must liaise with the school office before commencing activities.

All volunteers must agree to abide by the policies and procedures of the school and will be asked to sign a code of conduct.
