After a long break due to Covid restrictions, we are now welcoming back some volunteers!
Volunteers help in the classrooms, read with children, support trips and work alongside lunchtime staff. We have also welcomed volunteers at our after-school club - this is an ideal opportunity to gain experience in a playwork setting. We ask that volunteers are able to commit to a regular slot for at least a term.
All volunteers must be confident English speakers with good basic skills - this is usually equivalent to a level 1 qualification or above. We occasionally welcome PGCE students from the UK and abroad.
Our Volunteer Application form can be seen here. If we can offer you a placement you will need a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate. We ask for a contribution of £15 to process this check. Before you start, a volunteering agreement is also completed and signed - this covers confidentiality, health and safety, child protection and communication. You can read this here.
We also welcome reading buddies, who read 1-1 with children. More information, together with some FAQs about reading buddies is here.
