At Forestdale Primary School we value the contributions that parents, grandparents and family members can make to the school. There are many opportunities for you to get involved, and here are just a few you can volunteer for:
- helping with reading or listening to children read
- helping out on school trips
- joining our Parent/Teacher association
- becoming a school Governor
In line with Safeguarding requirements you will need to have a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, so please call into the school office if you would like more information. It does take a few weeks for DBS checks to be processed so please give us plenty of time to sort this out. Childrens’ safety and welfare is of prime importance and will always take precedence over visitors to the school.
Any volunteers working in school will need to see and sign a copy of the school’s Code of Conduct. Volunteers are required to comply with the code in order for us to provide and safe and positive educational climate for our pupils.
We also welcome community members who can offer local knowledge and share their skills and talents. We currently have links with the St Mary's Church, Pets as Therapy, Huntingfield Methodist Church, Jam Team, the local police and many, many more! If you think you could help to inspire future generations then please contact us.
