We often get asked ‘How can we help the school?’ or ‘We would like to give something back?’. This can be done in several ways by offering the school one, or all, of the following: ‘your time’ (by becoming a parent helper), ‘your expertise’ or ‘financial help’ through the school’s trust fund. See below for more information on how you can get involved, or contact the school if you wish to help with any aspect of school life, regularly or occasionally.
We enjoy and encourage parent (or grandparent!) helpers in school. Parents, family and community members come into school and help with a variety of activities, this help can be with reading, art/craft activities, sewing, ICT, swimming or school trips etc. We are always pleased to receive this extra help because we know how much it benefits every child. Please let your child’s class teacher know if you are happy to help.
Please note that volunteers who regularly help in school or on offsite visits will be checked by the DBS. The school office staff will assist you in this.
We are also keen to make full use of any talents parents may have and are always pleased to hear from parents who are able to come into school to talk to the children about aspects of their work, business, industry and hobbies. Equally, if you think that your place of work would be a suitable venue for a class visit, please let us know.
