Volunteering

The Importance of Volunteers

At Park we welcome volunteers to support the work of the school and to support those wishing to gain experience in a school setting.

All volunteers at Park Primary School will be made to feel welcome. The types of activities that volunteers are engaged in include:

  • Listening to children read
  • Working with small groups of children
  • Working alongside individual children within the classroom
  • Accompanying school visits

Becoming a Volunteer

The school regularly receives offers of voluntary support and requests for voluntary placements which we welcome; however we are limited to the number of volunteers we can accommodate at one time. For this reason the school operates a volunteer waiting list system in accordance with our Volunteer Policy.

Anyone wishing to become a volunteer should complete the Volunteer Expression of Interest Form

Park Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. If we are able to offer a voluntary placement, we will contact you to invite you in for an interview. An enhanced DBS check may be necessary according to the nature of the placement. We ask all volunteers to adhere to our Volunteer Agreement.

Please note that due to the current situation regarding Covid-19, we are not offering voluntary placements. We are sorry that this is the case as we appreciate all that volunteers have to offer. Should you be interested in volunteering, you are welcome to complete the Volunteer Expression of Interest Form to add your name to the waiting list but we are unable to indicate when the current position will change. Thank you for your understanding.
