We strongly believe that the partnership between home and school is very important and we encourage parents/carers to come into the school to help. This may involve listening to readers or helping with another area of the curriculum.
To ensure the safety of our pupils, all our volunteers have to undertake a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check before they can come into school to help. The procedure for this is as follows:
- Please obtain DBS application forms from the school office.
- Complete the on-line application and then return to the school with the appropriate forms of identification for verification.
- School will then electronically submit the application to be processed so that DBS can issue a certificate which will be posted.
- No fee is payable as parents are volunteers.
We also have a Volunteer Policy & Guidelines which we will ask all volunteers to read and sign – please see the Policies Page.
