At ACE, we are fully committed to being a key part of the local community and so we welcome the opportunity for parents/carers to come into school and volunteer. We currently have a wide range of volunteers in school who help to enrich our children’s learning by listening to them read or by simply being an extra pair of hands in class.
Reasons to Volunteer:
- Some are parent volunteers who like to help out on an occasional basis.
- Some are students who are taking part in a Teaching Assistant training course and using our school as a placement. In this situation the college they study with takes up references and DBS checks.
- Some are retired staff who have opted to keep their connection with school through volunteering.
- Some are parents or carers who have offered to share specific skills or strengths with our school.
If you are interested in volunteering please complete the application form below or contact the school office and discuss this with Jo Price, our Family Liaison Lead.
We will be very glad to welcome you. Usually we suggest that you volunteer in a part of school away from your own child or children. We often find that this is fairer on both of you as it allows you to separate parenting from volunteering.
The other way that parents and carers can become involved in school is through the work of Friends of Allerton (our PTA). If you would like to volunteer for one of their events in school or become a member of Friends then please email email@example.com or simply follow this link to the Friends page for more information.
