Volunteers play an important role in the life of our school.  Whether it is listening to a child read, joining us on trips and visits or leading enrichment activities, volunteers are a valued part of our school community.  To this end it is the school's responsibility to ensure that our volunteers are properly supported and, where necessary, given appropriate safeguarding and child protection training so that they too can play their part in keeping all our children happy, healthy and safe.  Below you will find links to our key safeguarding and child protection documents.  If  you wish to become a regular volunteer then we will pay for you to go through the DBS (disclosure and barring service) check.

If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity then please contact the school office and arrange a time to speak with a member of the leadership team.  Alternatively, speak to one of the class teachers.
