Our local Nursery schools also join us to celebrate Christmas and are invited to see the Nativity Performance by all the children in Key Stage 1 and EYFS.
We also support our local British Legion Poppy Appeal every year.
Parents, carers, grandparents, governors and friends also come into school in various ways including craft, reading, sport, handwriting and cookery. The help of parents is vital to support events, trips and enrich learning. If you are able to support the school on a regular basis then please inform the school office so an appropriate location and induction programme can be organised. Curriculum themes also provide regular opportunities for parents to come in and work alongside their children and see displays, presentations and assemblies.
Where financially possible, we always seek to use local contractors and suppliers e.g. Office Gold in Godalming, Guildford Lock and Safe, CEF in Guildford and so on.
All parent volunteers, volunteers from the community and contractors are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
