Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers.
Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life.
You can help by:
listening to children read in the classroom
volunteering on sports days
helping supervise excursions
getting involved in fundraising activities
joining school committees.
Recent legislative changes require schools to request volunteers to provide certain documentation if they are working in schools in varying capacities. Please see the link below to determine what you may be asked to provide.
