Parent helpers at St Mary’s
We are always so grateful if parents are able to offer their time to come in and support us in school.
We need help with things like: reading stories to children in the infants; hearing readers in the juniors; supporting with swimming; and supporting on activity days and trips.
In order to do this you will need to have a current and valid DBS (Disclosure & Barring service) certificate
Please complete the online application using the applicant’s guidance document that can be found here. Once you have done so, please pop into the school as soon as you can with three forms of identification – ideally passport, driving licence and a bank statement or utility bill dated in the last three months. This will then enable us to verify the application. Usually after that they take a week or so to come back to me, and once that part has happened you will be good to go!
We have plans to set up a whole school Parent Helper dojo group for all our DBS checked parents so that if ANY year group has a need ANY parent can help.
If you are already DBS checked with the school you can start straight away so please let us know things like: when you are available; which year groups you are most interested in supporting; and which sorts of activities you are most interested in supporting.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org putting Parent Helper in the subject line if you are interested or would like to know more.
Thank you for your support.
