Volunteering in school

Volunteering in school

Subject to the required DBS Safeguarding checks we welcome a wide range of volunteers at Burwell.

Parents and Relatives

Helping in class is of great benefit to the pupils.  In a very busy timetable, it is wonderful to have extra help.  This often takes the form of reading with children.  However, if you have other skills that you can offer, then we are keen to hear.  please contact your childs teacher in the first instance.  You may be asked to work with other classes or year groups.  However, whatever you do will be of great benefit to the pupils.

Outside organisations

If you would like to come in and offer to run workshops, assemblies or clubs, then we are very keen to hear from you.  If you feel you can contribute to the school and help broaden the experiences of our pupils, please contact the office.  They will put you in touch with the relevant teacher who can then respond.

Professional Volunteering

As a school we also accept people who would like to volunteer or gain experience in a professional capacity. This often includes people volunteering as Teaching Assistants, pre-teaching or pre-degree placements,  or those who need experience as part of a course or qualification such as nursery courses, play or music therapists.
