We encourage parents and carers to be active in supporting their child’s education and to become involved in school life. Parents and carers will require a Disclosure Check when working a lone with children in the school.

To be active within the school you can:

Help in your child’s class, join the St Peter’s ‘Friends’ and/or support their activities, become a member of the school governing body, make costumes and cakes for specific school events (school plays, cake sales, etc.).

On a regular basis some parents and friends:

  • hear children read,
  • help at school,
  • help on visits,
  • help with craft work,
  • help with transport,
  • work alongside children on the computer.

We value any contribution that parents can make at all stages from foundation to year 6.

Do you have a skill that you can share with us?

Do not hesitate to contact us. We need you!
