VOLUNTEERING IN SCHOOL

We are always eager to have help in school from our parents and even grandparents. Currently we have parents helping with reading, baking, sewing, gardening, making resources and general classroom activities.

Parents who wish to help with reading are trained first by our Headteacher then allocated a class where they visit regularly at times to suit them. They read with individual children under the supervision of the class teacher. We call these helpers reading partners. Many have returned year after year as they find this role both interesting and rewarding.

On a Friday morning we have a group of parents and ex-parents who are keen to help to make resources. Teachers leave instructions and materials and this group work together to make things. Young children can also be brought along. One member of this group has been attending these useful sessions for over fifteen years, so they must be enjoyable! People new to the school or area often find that this is a good way of meeting other parents.

Parents are an invaluable help on visits, in fact without this support visits could not take place as we could not provide the necessary high ratio of adults to children required.

Parents also help us at our fundraising events such as tea afternoons and summer fairs.

We are open to new ideas of ways people can be involved and expertise they can bring to enrich the opportunities for our children. So if you can help in any way please come forward and contact the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Berry.

Our H.S.A. are very active supporting and helping the school. They welcome new members so if you haven't already done so attend their next meeting or function.

We run CRB/DBS checks on all of our helpers in line with our health and safety policy.
