Volunteering - DBS Information
Parent volunteers are one of our most valuable resources. There are many ways in which you can volunteer to help:
-All classes would like support with reading for 20 minutes at the beginning or end of the school day. This can be a regular arrangement or done on an ad hoc basis when you find you have time.
-Support in class for a morning or afternoon. This would need to be arranged in advance with the class teacher. You would experience a range of activities working with the children.
-School trips. We always need parents to support on class trips.
-Swimming in Year 3. This is a weekly commitment to support our children in completing swimming lessons.
All of these would require you to obtain a DBS check through our school office. You would need to be able to come into school at least once every 3 months for the check to stay actuve.
Please be advised that all parents who help us in the classroom or on school trips will now require a full police check (DBS – Disclosure and Barring Service). A Volunteer Helper Policy pack will be issued and completion of a Confidential Childcare (Disqualification) Regulations 2018 form will be required.
