Volunteering Across The Federation
The Wroughton Primary Federation highly values parents and others who volunteer to help out with school activities. We encourage your support, contributions and assistance. Many school activities would be at risk if it wasn’t for your help and many of our children benefit greatly from it. Whilst you are engaged in voluntary activities for the school we have a duty of care to ensure your safety and well-being and that of our children. This means ensuring that their welfare is promoted, they are cared for appropriately and they are safeguarded from harm.
We have a responsibility to ensure that all adults working for the school are suitable people to work with children. Adults working with children MUST be subject to the school’s risk management process to determine if you are required to undertake a ‘DBS’ check. (Disclosure Barring Service check). We can assure you that any DBS checks are confidential and are undertaken to ensure the safety of our children. DBS is required if you are to have regular contact with school children. When in school volunteering or on an off-site visit, you will be provided with the necessary information to help you support each planned event or activity. It is essential that we acknowledge that volunteers behave appropriately whilst working with our children.
