Voluntary Helpers

Voluntary work is of great benefit to both the volunteers and the school.  It can be a fun and rewarding experience.  As a volunteer your role would be to help support and engage with the children so they have the best possible experience whilst at school.

All volunteers must be prepared to undertake a DBS (criminal records) check.  Also, if you have pupils in school, it is school’s policy not to place parents and volunteers in classes where their own child or relations are taught.
