Becoming a Volunteer

Anyone wishing to work as a volunteer who will be in school on a regular basis (at least 3 occasions in one month ) should complete a volunteer application form (see below) This should be completed and returned with the necessary original Identity documents to facilitate a Disclosure and Barring Service check.

 

Where the volunteering is a placement linked to a course of study the cost of the DBS will be met by the volunteer (or his/her college).

 

When two satisfactory references and a clear DBS check has been received by the school, the Headteacher will interview the potential volunteer and an appropriate placement will be agreed. This will be in a class which has no family connection to the applicant. A regular day and time will be agreed and the applicant will be expected to sign a confidentiality agreement.

 

An entry will be made on the school’s Safeguarding Central Record and a file maintained with the confidential details of the volunteer which will be retained by school for 7 years after the volunteer resigns from their volunteering responsibilities.

 

The exceptions to this are:

 

  • Work Experience Students or University Placements who apply via their educational establishment, as it is expected that all necessary safeguarding checks have been carried out by the educational establishment before arriving at Field Lane J  I and N. The student will be expected to sign a confidentiality agreement and will not be placed in a class with any family connection.
  • One-off volunteers i.e. assisting with a school walk, a fund raising event or a school visit will only require an ‘ISA’’ check to be carried out. Care should be taken to ensure these volunteers do not have sole responsibility for a group of children or provide any form of intimate care (as directed in the Educational Visits Policy).
  • Volunteer drivers who would need to be accompanied by another adult (both with Isa check) should provide to the School Business Manager MOT, current insurance and driving licence 2 days before the event.
  •  

Complete the application form below and return it to the School Office on office@fieldlaneschool.co.uk.
