WELCOME TO

St James C of E Primary School

Welcome to our school website which I hope you will find both informative and a reflection of what is happening here at St. James School. We are a church school and our Christian values underpin a lot of our work and aspirations both for the children and the whole school community.

Volunteering In School policy

We actively welcome volunteers at our school as we know they bring with them a range of skills and experience that can enhance the learning opportunities of our children.

 Our volunteers include

  • Members of the Governing body
  • Parents of pupils
  • Ex-pupils
  • Students on work experience
  • University students referred to us by Student Volunteer Services
  • Local residents
  • Friends of the school.

The types of activities that volunteers are engaged include

  • Hearing children read
  • Working with small groups of children
  • Working alongside individual children
  • Accompanying school visits
  • Sharing their skills/knowledge by talking to the class

 

If you would like to become a volunteer, either for a one off event or on a more regular basis, e.g. hearing children read, should contact the Class teacher, Head teacher or Assistant head.

Parents wishing to accompany children on school visits should contact the School Office and complete a List 99 form

 

 

Safeguarding our children is a priority and visitors and volunteers must follow our clear procedures.  We also make sure that any volunteer or visitor to school – which includes the staff who run our after school clubs – visits the School office to sign in and read the school information sheet on safeguarding. Volunteers and visitors are not be left unsupervised with any children at any time unless they are regular volunteers who have completed a DBS check.
