Parents – trips, helpers, volunteers


To enrich the curriculum we arrange visits to museums, galleries, religious buildings, environmental sites etc. In order that these visits can take place, parents may be asked to make a voluntary financial contribution. No pupil will be excluded from any activity due to the non-payment of a voluntary contribution. However, the school reserves the right to determine whether the level of voluntary contributions is sufficient to enable the activity to take place. We welcome the involvement of parents in helping supervise off site visits.

Parent Helpers

If you have any spare time and could pop into school to lend a hand we are always very grateful to have volunteers helping at school. There are so many things you could do; reading, sewing, cooking, photocopying, helping with displays, the list goes on & on…!

If you can help out, do speak to your child’s class teacher and say when would be good times for you. You will need a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check if you become a regular volunteer for our school – please see Ms Greaves in the office to arrange that.


We warmly welcome parents, carers and friends of St Anne’s into school who are able to offer time and support within the classroom.  This makes a big difference to the children’s learning and is a good way of getting to know the school better. We do ask that all helpers obtain clearance from the Criminal Records Bureau before coming in to help, in line with school and LEA policy. (Forms may be obtained from the school office).  Activities include hearing children read, art & craft work, accompanying classes on educational visits and working in groups.  If parents are able to help we ask that they contact the Head or Deputy to arrange a mutually convenient time to come in.
