We welcome a variety of adults into school on a voluntary basis. These may be parents, grandparents, other adults looking for placements to gain experience before starting a course in education, student teachers, work experience students from the high school or other members of the Slattocks/Rochdale community. All these adults have a particular talent, expertise or are interested in helping children to reach their full potential, which is linked to a class or school-based topic. Volunteering at school is rewarding – you can gain first hand understanding of the daily activities here at St John’s, gain valuable experience and help the children to develop and learn new skills.
If you would like to volunteer at St. John's CE, Thornham have a read through the Volunteer Policy below, complete the application form and hand it into the school office. Our head teacher, Mrs. Hunter will be in touch with you to discuss further details including Safeguarding checks and references.
