Volunteering at Sully School

Volunteers at our school bring with them a range of skills and experience that can enhance the learning opportunities of children. We welcome and
encourage volunteers from the local community.

Our volunteers include:

  • Members of the governing body
  •  Parents and carers of pupils
  • Grandparents of pupils
  • University students
  • Childcare students
  • Former members of staff
  • Local residents

The types of activities that volunteers are engaged in might include:

  • Hearing children read
  • Working with small groups of children
  •  Working with individual children
  •  Undertaking arts and craft activities with children
  • Supporting teachers to run after school clubs
  • Working with children on the computer
  • Accompanying school visits
  •  Sports teams

Becoming a volunteer:

Anyone wishing to become a volunteer, either for a on-off event or on a more regular basis, should approach their child’s class teacher, the deputy head teacher or the head teacher. Before starting in school and to ensure the safety of our pupils at all times, all volunteers will be required to complete a DBS check. Forms can be obtained from the school office. We are unable to have any volunteer in school unless they show their certificate in school. The number of this certificate will be recorded. An induction meeting with the head teacher will also be held prior to the volunteer starting to work with the children to discuss health and safety issues, confidentiality and child protection issues.
