Placements and Volunteers

Joseph Cash Primary School welcomes volunteers to support the children with their learning.


Lots of parents listen to the children read, support in the lessons, help children to develop their maths and writing skills and other practical skills such as sewing or craft making. Some of our volunteers support us as librarians too.


As we have many requests we have a new system for volunteers.


  1. To request a volunteer placement, please email us using:  stating your volunteer request

  2. You will be emailed an application form to complete:

    1. The application form will ask for your personal information such as skills, training/qualifications

    2. The application form will ask you to provide a statement why you would like to volunteer with us

    3. The application form will ask you to provide two referees, whom will be contacted for a safeguarding reference for you.


Joseph Cash Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


If we are able to offer a place you will receive a further email confirming this and sending you more information regarding completing a Disclosure and Barring Clearance (formerly CRB).


The cost for this clearance is £9 for volunteers and £55 for students and will need to be completed and paid for prior to starting the placement. We ask for a 50% contribution towards this cost e.g. either £4.50 or £27.50, depending on the DBS check required.


IMPORTANT Joseph Cash Primary School reserves the right to refuse or withdraw a volunteer placement.
