Volunteering in school

We have a number of volunteers in school and we value the skills and expereinces that they bring.

Volunteers help in the classroom, help with reading, support school trips and visits, help with specific events and work alongside lunchtime staff or after-school activity leaders.

Class-based volunteers need to be confident English speakers and should have a good level of basic skills - this is equivalent to a level 1 qualification or above. At the moment we are particularly keen to recruit volunteers who can help our children develop broader vocabularies and a love of reading. There is some training for reading volunteers planned for November - for more information click here:

A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check is carried out for all volunteers in school; we ask for a contribution of £10 to process these checks. A volunteering agreement is also completed and signed and, unless you are already known to school, we may request references as well. The volunteering agreement explains our guidelines regarding confidentiality, health and safety, child protection and communication.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please explain how many hours each week you would like to volunteer for and for how long a time period. We ask that volunteers are able to commit to a regular slot for 6 months. We are occasioanlly able to offer shorter-term opportunities, such as 2-week observation placements for new PGCE stdents. 

Please note, we are generally happy to provde references for volunteers who have been with us for 3 months or more.
