Being a classroom helper is only one way to volunteer at Falcons Primary School. There are other things you can do that don’t require a regular commitment. We often ask for parent volunteers to help with school trips. However, as with being a classroom helper, you probably won’t be looking after your own child directly. We sometimes ask parents to help with drama productions or with one-off events at the school. Another way you can help is by offering your skills. For example, your work experience may be useful to share with pupils at some point in the curriculum - again, not necessarily in your child’s year.
Before you can work in a school, you need to have a police background check. It is a standard procedure – carried out by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks in England and Wales and by Disclosure Scotland in Scotland. You will be asked to fill out a straightforward form which is sent off for processing – the check takes 4-6 weeks.
