Volunteering in School

As part of our safeguarding procedures, parents who volunteer to change books or read to children in school have to attend a volunteers' meeting, provide two references, read a number of documents and sign a Memorandum of Understanding before they can commence helping out in school. Please go to the Helping in School page for detailed information.
