In addition, we have visiting peripatetic music teachers. Parent helpers and volunteers  regularly come in to support teachers across the curriculum and with trips and sporting activities.  We value and encourage parents to become actively involved with their children's learning, the school and its activities - if you are interested and have some spare time, then please do contact the school office.  All parents and helpers will be subject to a DBS check before starting at the school.
