Helping in School

Helping in School

We have a number of parent/carer helpers who volunteer on a regular basis and others who help out on one-off trips etc. We are always looking for more. Our helpers are often, but not always, parents/carers of children at the school. The time in school can vary from half an hour to a full day.

Parent helpers assist with tasks like listening to pupils read, painting and crafts. Remember; if you have a skill to share please let us know!

Classroom helpers make a big difference in improving standards. Even if you’re not helping in your child’s class, research shows that having a parent who volunteers improves a child’s experience of school. This may be because you’re more ‘plugged in’ to school and know what goes on during their day. It’s a great way to get behind the scenes.

If you are interested in helping in school please come in and talk to us.


We can also help families in many ways by:

  • Flying Parrot

    Liaising with school staff to identify pupils who would benefit from mentoring

  • Helping pupils who are underperforming in their subjects on a one-to-one basis outside the classroom
  • Implementing strategies and supporting pupils in self-esteem and confidence-building activities
  • Listening to and helping pupils resolve a range of issues that are creating barriers to learning
  • Meeting with parents/carers to discuss issues and problems
  • Advising parents on behaviour strategies and parenting skills
  • Signposting parents/carers to local support networks and/or professional organisations
  • Helping with transition activities for pupils moving to secondary schools
