There are lots of ways to get involved with the school and we actively seek parental involvement and engagement throughout the school year and in a number of ways:
As a whole school, we are dedicated to nurturing a lifelong love of books and have lots of different ways to encourage reading in and around school. We are very fortunate to have a regular group of parent and community volunteers who come into school every Monday afternoon to support Year 3 pupils in using our library. This extra support is incredibly valuable as it provides special time for children to learn how to select, enjoy and share books, building skills for the future.
If you can spare your time on Monday afternoons, please let us know-we would love to have you join us!
Helping out with Swimming Lessons
Our Year 3 pupils visit the local swimming pool on Thursdays and we are always looking for parent volunteers since as you can imagine-it takes lots of support to organise and supervise a full class!
Please see our Year 3 Class Teachers if you can help.
Accompanying School Trips
The children enjoy a wide range of exciting trips and experiences throughout the school year and parent volunteers are an essential part of our planning as we need to maintain high levels of supervision when off the premises. It is also a good chance for you to participate and share the children's learning so please let class teachers know if you are available to help!
Sharing your own experiences, skills and ideas with the children through:
Aspirations Week, Arts Week, Equalities Week.
We often focus on particular areas of learning during the school year and are always looking for new ideas so please look out for invitations to get involved. You may have a talent or skill which you would like to share with the children-please complete and return the form below and we will be in touch!
Parent Workshops and Courses
We work in partnership with Victoria Park Infant School and Trafford College to offer Family and Adult Learning opportunities, these courses can be based here or in the Community Room at the Infant School. Please let us know if there is something specific which you would like support with e.g. helping your child with English or Maths.
Nicola Body also regularly delivers a FREE Incredible Years Parenting Course at the Infant School. The 12 week course is really helpful for anyone who has a caring role for children aged 2-8 years old and is great opportunity to get to know other parents and share the trials (and joys) of parenthood!!
