Would you like to help our school? There are many ways in which you could help it may be time related, materially or financially.

Time

We have many ways in which you can help with your time. You could be come a member of our governing body and help with making important decisions with the school as we move forward. Vacancies are advertised on parentmail. Find out more here

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) are always looking for active members to help with the many fundraising activities that they do over the year to help our school contact them here.

During the current Covid Restrictions volunteering is limited and will need to be considered under our Risk Assessment.

We are always looking for volunteers to work in school, all of which would be subject to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check, as safeguarding our children is paramount.

There are many different roles from helping in the classroom, listening to readers, to looking after the school libraries. If you prefer the outside helping on the school allotment either maintaining or working with groups of children and a member of staff. Maintenance of the growing spaces, as we develop these further.

If you have the time to commit to a half-day per week or have a bit of one off time contact Michelle Heather our Deputy Headteacher by email mheather@buckdenacademy.org 

We also have some one off items that you may have some time to come into to do, if you find yourself with some time to spare.
