Clifton Primary School

Aspire to Achieve




We welcome parents/carers and students to volunteer at Clifton Primary School 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.
  • For the vast majority it is a requirement of a course. 


The work carried out by volunteers could come in the form of helping in the classroom, during an after school club, at a fundraising event or during an educational visit. 


Classroom assistant volunteers may help with any of the following:

  • Supporting the teacher to prepare for lessons
  • Listening to children read
  • Telling the children stories or reading to them
  • Supporting individual pupils
  • Supporting groups of children in all curriculum areas.


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