We greatly value and appreciate the time and effort that each of our volunteers generously gives to our school, whether it is on a regular or more ad hoc basis. In order to try to make our volunteers feel welcomed, valued and well informed about our school – including its activities, values and objectives – we aim to provide active and positive support to our volunteers in several ways, including:
All applicants must complete the Volunteer Information Sheet and send it to the school either by post or email. All applications the school receives are kept on file and will be considered as and when a need arises.
Before starting to help in school, volunteers will also be invited to complete the Volunteer Agreement which sets out the school’s expectations of volunteers but, just as importantly, explains what volunteers can expect from our school. Prospective volunteers will also be required to complete a routine Criminal Record Bureau disclosure application (“DBS check”), before starting to help in school.
