At Shaftesbury High School we like to encourage volunteers from our local and wider community. We believe that all volunteers are important as they bring with them a wide range of skills and experiences which they can use and put into practice whilst working with the children. We also have volunteers who are completing college/university courses that require them to stay for the duration of their placement in a special needs school. The types of activities that volunteers can be engaged in include:

  • Working with small groups of pupils
  • Working alongside individual children
  • Working with children on computers
  • Undertaking art and craft activities
  • Accompanying school visits
  • Providing positive role models and one to one support
  • Supporting independence skills such as eating at lunchtime
  • Supporting children to play during playtimes.
