Volunteering in School

First and foremost, I’d like to thank all of those priceless people who give so much of your time to the school through the PTA and through volunteering in class. Volunteers are the unsung heroes of the school and are a vital and valuable asset to us.

If you would like to volunteer in school we would ask  that you contact the office in the first instance as we will need to arrange an enhanced DBS check for you.

As part of our safeguarding procedures, we would also require you read and agree to comply with the following documents:

  • The School’s Safeguarding Policy
  • The School’s Code of Conduct Policy
  • Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) Part 1

All of these documents can be found on our Safeguarding Policies webpage.

We ask that you complete a Google Form  to confirm that you have read and agree to comply with these policy documents.



We truly do value the generosity of all of our volunteers for giving up their time to support the school and the children.
