Volunteers

November 2019 – We are currently unable to accommodate any more volunteers, please look out for a reading volunteers letter coming home soon. 

 

At Lum Head we welcome the opportunity for volunteers to join our school community as we believe they make a significant contribution to the life of the School.  Lum Head believes that by providing opportunities for volunteers to work alongside our children, the volunteer will gain a range of skills and work experience. They will develop confidence and motivation to try different things and benefit the community they serve.

 

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, you can register an interest using a Volunteer Application Form and emailing it to  admin@lumhead.stockport.sch.uk.  We will then contact you to discuss it further.  As safeguarding is so important to us you will be asked to sign a Volunteer Agreement and complete a DBS check. 

 

Our volunteers might include:

  • University, college and sixth form students
  • Members of the governing body
  • Members of the local community
  • Parents of pupils
  • Former pupils

  • Listening to children read
