We need a steady stream of volunteers in order that the opportunities for the children are maximised.

In school we need volunteers in classes Reception and Yr 1 and 2 to support our 'author study'. Largely this involves reading a short book to small groups of children on a friday afternoon and then placing a copy of the book into each of their bags to take home over the weekend. The sessions take about 30 / 45 mins.

You can also support the school on a more ad-hoc basis by joining the 'Friends of Church Cowley PTA'. They have big events around Xmas, Easter and at the end of the year as well as 2 school discos and some cake sales. You can find out more information from the group by asking for more details at the office.

In order to volunteer as a helper you'll need to provide a reference from an employer or similar, complete a DBS check (we can do this for you), be available for at least a term (12 weeks) and complete a safeguarding induction at school before you start (this takes approx 2 hours).
