St Joseph's Catholic

Primary School

Following in the footsteps of Jesus, together we love live and learn.




We welcome parents/carers and parishioners to volunteer at St Joseph's to support our pupils. Volunteering at school is a rewarding experience and benefits the whole school community.


People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons.

  • For some it offers opportunities to give something back to the community.
  • For others it may provide an opportunity to develop new skills.


Classroom assistant volunteers may help with any of the following:

  • Listening to children read
  • Telling the children stories or reading to them
  • Supporting individual pupils
  • Supporting groups of children


For the safety of all children, regular volunteer helpers will be subject to a DBS check. 


Before being accepted as a volunteer at St Joseph's, you will be required to:

  • Complete the Volunteer Form found below 
  • Be acquainted with school procedures (Safeguarding, health & safety and behaviour procedures) 
  • Apply for a DBS
