Becoming a Volunteer
Anyone wishing to become a volunteer, either for a one-off event such as a school visit or on a more regular basis, e.g. assisting students with literacy, usually approaches the Principal, a Senior member of Staff or Class Teacher directly. Volunteers should complete the Volunteer Application Form (see below ) with their contact details, types of activities they would like to help with, the times they are available to help and return it to office.
Please note: The school will seek RCIPS clearance for a volunteer before they come into school, to make an informed decision when accepting volunteers to work with children.
School Standards : All adults / Young People 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 standards and educational values.
