Volunteer feedback:

"I have worked as a volunteer at Beechfield School for some time now. It is a lovely friendly, respectful place to be part of. I love working with the children and helping with their reading. It is very rewarding getting to know them and seeing the progress they are making. The class teacher is always very grateful for my input. I would highly recommend Beechfield School as a place to volunteer."

"I love coming to hear the children read.  It's great to see them initially be brave to read to a stranger. When I arrive at the classroom door I'm greeted with lots of smiles and hands up for going first, which is lovely. And over time their confidence increases, which is especially rewarding with the quieter and/or less able children.   I'm privileged to share their world for a little time each week."

Interested in becoming a volunteer?

If you are interested in volunteering at our school the following information will be of use to you before you apply.

All volunteers will be required to have a DBS check and supply two references. This will be undertaken by the school. There is a cost associated with this payable by the school, for this reason we ask that volunteers are confident that they can commit their time before applying.
