Volunteering at Botley C of E Primary School


Thank you for showing an interest in volunteering to help our children in school.  We welcome a variety of volunteers into school on a voluntary basis.  These may be parents, grandparents, adults looking for placements to gain experience before starting a course in education or other members of the Botley community who wish to contribute to the learning and development of our children.


Types of activities

  • Hearing children read
  • Working with small groups of children
  • Undertaking craft activities
  • Working with children on computers
  • Preparing resources for lessons
  • Accompanying school visits
  • Escorting children on local walks



There is a requirement for schools to carry out an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check for everyone who works in a school whether that be paid employment or in a voluntary capacity.  You will also need to have a Safeguarding and Health and Safety Induction with a member of the Senior Leadership Team once you have DBS clearance and before starting to work in school.
