We welcome volunteers at Brooklands School who are encouraged to assist and participate in teaching and learning activities under the guidance of the school staff. We acknowledge that each individual brings to the school a different perspective and a differing amount of experience in working with children with learning disabilities. We are pleased to share our expertise and to learn from others.
In order to safeguard the children, volunteers will be asked to provide two character references prior to starting work, one of which should be from a professional person (eg teacher or GP). An identity check will also be carried out before the volunteer starts work here. DBS clearance will be obtained before volunteers start. Brooklands will cover the cost of volunteer DBS checks. They will be given guidance by school staff on their behaviour on site and child protection procedures.
Volunteers should sign in on their arrival and as they depart.
Parents who volunteer will be asked to work with classes other than their own child’s.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at the school please contact the school office.
