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.
- To request a volunteer placement, please complete the application form below and return to firstname.lastname@example.org
- The application form will ask for your personal information such as skills, training/qualification, to provide a statement why you would like to volunteer with us and for two referees, whom will be contacted for safeguarding references 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.
