What do I need to do to become a school volunteer?

Athelstan school is very grateful of any help and support from parents and carers. In line with the schools safeguarding policy and procedures we ask that all volunteers complete an induction and are subject to the schools own risk assessment and volunteer code of conduct . Volunteers who are helping on a regular basis in school will also be asked to undergo an enhanced DBS Check and take part in a school safeguarding induction. Details of this can be obtained from the school office.
