The school values the contribution that parents and carers can give to the school. It’s part of the home-school partnership to fulfil the potential of all.
It can be interesting and enjoyable being a parent helper and it is not just restricted to parents…grandparents, aunts, uncles etc. can all provide invaluable help.
Volunteers can help in a number of ways including listening to children read, assisting in maths challenges or helping small groups of children in tasks directed by the teacher such as painting, crafts, gardening. Even just an hour a week makes a valuable contribution.
You will appreciate that in the interests of child protection the school is required to complete a DBS check on all volunteers.
These forms can be obtained from the School Business Manager at the school office and she will assist and advise on completing the form.
