 "Thank you to you all for the time you take informing and helping parents tackle issues, so helpful and so appreciated"  Parent 


We believe parents and carers play a vital role in their children’s education and the wider aspects of school life.

We welcome parents/carers who wish to get involved in life at our school, in any capacity. Volunteers work in our school in a number of ways including: administration, events, reading schemes and classroom assistants. If you would like to volunteer, we have a number of ideas:

  • You could come into school and support children with their learning;
  • Volunteer to help out on school trips;
  • Help with community events (such as our coffee/tea mornings);
  • Support the school with your skillset.

If you want further information, then please contact the helpful people at our school office, and they will ask you to fill in a form and direct you to the appropriate person.


We regularly offer training workshops throughout the year on topics such as:

  • Easy English
  • Mental Maths
  • Interesting ICT

Other workshops may include PSHE (Personal, Social, Health Education), Phonics, Online E-Safety and Secondary Transfers. Our reception families will also be offered phonics and parenting workshops.
