Abbey Meadows Primary School appreciates and encourages voluntary help. Voluntary work comes in many forms, from relatively ‘official’ posts such as school Governors, to more ‘informal’ positions like helping young children with reading on an ad hoc basis.
Voluntary Learning Support Assistant
Abbey Meadows supports children with learning difficulties and children for whom English is not their first language. We welcome parents/carers volunteers to as voluntary learning support assistants. This is usually on a very part time basis and the role will see you helping children to read or prepare for activities, perhaps getting ready for a certain play or school event. As such, we recommend that volunteers ‘donate’ two or three hours a week and will do whatever the teacher asks of them. While there is no payment, it can be a great way to gain experience if you are looking to become a paid learning support assistant.
We are always delighted to have enthusiastic and hard working volunteers. Whether you would like:
Everyone at Abbey Meadows who works with children in any capacity is required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), check. The DBS helps us make safer recruitment decisions and prevent unsuitable people from working with children. The check will determine whether you have any criminal charges against you, especially those which relate to children.
