Volunteers at our school bring with them a range of skills and experience that can enhance the learning opportunities of children at school. We welcome and encourage volunteers from the local community. However, safeguarding is our paramount concern and anyone who will be coming into school on a regular basis or working on a one-to-one with a child will be asked to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check before they can commence their volunteering. Additionally volunteers will also be asked to comply with the guidelines as set out in the Visitor's Briefing Document (see below).
Our volunteers include:
Members of the Governing Body
Parents of pupils
Students on work experience
Friends of the school / parish
The types of activities that volunteers are engaged include:
Hearing children read
Working with small groups of children
Undertaking art & craft activities with children
Accompanying school visits
Our School Values
All adults who work in our school, whether a paid member of staff or a volunteer, are expected to work and behave in such a way as to actively promote our school values.
