Volunteering at St Sidwell's
We welcome volunteers at St Sidwell's to enhance the learning opportunities of our pupils. Volunteers at our school bring with them a range of skills and experience. Therefore, the Local Governing Board welcomes and encourages volunteers from the local community. These volunteers may include:
Members of the Governing Body
Parents of pupils
Students on work experience
Ex-members of staff
Friends of the school
The types of activities that volunteers engage in, on behalf of the school, include:
Hearing pupils read
Working with small groups of pupils to assist them in their learning
Working alongside individual pupils, as an additional tutor
Accompanying school visits
Fundraising activities (e.g. PTA)
However, in accordance with KCSIE, we continue to adopt robust recruitment procedures that deter and prevent people who are unsuitable to work with children from applying for volunteering opportunities in the school.
