Volunteering at Sowerby Village


This policy outlines our aim to provide a safe environment in line with statutory safeguarding policy and procedures.  We welcome visitors and volunteers and aim to ensure that they have a positive impact on children.

We are always pleased to have volunteers in school and hope that volunteers find their time in school enjoyable, fun and rewarding. We know that the children benefit from volunteers in lots of different ways and many activities could not take place without your help and support.

Volunteering can take place in lots of different ways. Coming in to school is not just about listening to children read, you may prefer to come in and help in science, art, computing or PE.  Let us know where your interest lies and we will try and accommodate you.

It may be that you have a particular skill or interest e.g to contribute to an RE session or an assembly to share your religious beliefs. You may want to work directly with the children or come in and help put up displays.   We are always pleased to have people in school to help with different aspects of school life.

We undertake thorough checks as part of our commitment to safeguarding, which is why the application checks and processes are just as thorough as when applying to work in school.
