We are extremely fortunate to have a large number of dedicated volunteers with a wealth of educational and life experience, who work with our school staff every week. We were delighted to be the first junior school in the country to be awarded the ‘Investing in Volunteers’ standard in January 2010, as it recognises the work and commitment we have demonstrated towards volunteers at our school.
‘The inclusive, open and welcoming approach that everyone at St Peter’s has towards the volunteers was evident from many sources’

‘We are valued for our skills, they supported me doing a refresher course which gave me back my confidence to undertake a new role, they are good at spotting your talents’
Volunteers are an important part of our team. We appreciate the wealth of knowledge, skills and experience they are able to offer our pupils and staff. We currently have around 30 volunteers in school, of all ages, who come in on a regular basis to support a variety of different activities.
They assist with reading, school trips, art, choir, swimming, sports, clubs and much, much more.In additon we have an amazing PTFA, comprising of family members of our pupils as well as staff and governors, who run exciting events and support the school with fundraising.
If you would like further information or an informal chat to find out more, please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Mrs Roby in the school office.
