We encourage parents to support school. We normally are particularly pleased to welcome parents to our “Helping Hands” scheme but this is currently on hold due to the Covid pandemic. The scheme offers an opportunity to work with the children in class, not their own child’s class, such as reading as well as offering other kinds of practical support. We also normally offer ad hoc opportunities for parents to come in to help with Design & Technology projects where you may be in your child’s class. Some parents come into school to talk to classes about their religious beliefs or their occupation. All volunteers who help on a regular basis are required to apply for a DBS check. We hope we will be able to open our doors again soon to volunteers once the pandemic is over.
