Nether Green Infant School

Volunteering in school


"Everyone Teaches, Everyone Learns"

We believe that the involvement of parents, carers  and volunteers in children's education is vital and we encourage active participation in many ways. Volunteers come into school to help with a variety of tasks such as reading, painting, sewing etc. and usually work with individuals or small groups in specific classes. Volunteers also help when children visit the school library, support on educational visits outside school or get involved with PTA events.

Reading Volunteers

Parents and carers may be interested in becoming one of our reading volunteers. Reading volunteers are regular readers who help children in classes other than those which their own children belong.

Parent/Carer Volunteers

Your child's teacher will ask for regular volunteers to help with activities such as exchanging library books, helping with reading or art.  

Community Volunteers

We welcome requests from members of the local community who are interested in volunteering in our school. 


For more information on how you can help at PTA events such as the disco, summer fair etc please see the PTA page on this website.


For more information on what we expect from our volunteers click here Volunteer Helper Guidelines.

All volunteers in our school are asked to fill in a Volunteer Application Form and to sign the Volunteer Agreement Form.  

Volunteers will also be required to complete a DBS check - further information is available from the school office. The policy for Volunteers and Students in school can be found on the policies page.
