We are continually in need of help in school. Areas you might like to consider include:
- support with reading
- the literacy hour
- help with displays
- assisting with practical subjects.
The School’s PA is also keen for parents to help with the various events that it puts on during the year. If you feel that you are able to give up some time, please contact the school office. Please note that all new volunteers will need to complete an official vetting clearance procedure.

The understanding of mathematics and being numerate plays a critical role in preparing our pupils for adult life.
The general aims and objectives of teaching mathematics and numeracy are:
- To fulfil our statutory duty to provide schemes of work to deliver the national curriculum across Key Stages 2 and 3 to all pupils including, where necessary, special arrangements for those with special educational needs.
- To develop problem solving and investigative skills and build towards the solution of open ended tasks both as life skills and as a requirement of examinations in years to come.
- To continue to build upon the mathematical foundation laid in the first schools.
- To develop within students a sense of responsibility for their own work and progress.
- To work with our pupils in identifying areas of strength and weakness, help them to understand their own current level of achievement and future progression.
- To develop the mathematical skills, concepts and interests of each student according to their ability and need.
- To employ various teaching and learning styles as appropriate.
- To monitor and assess each pupil’s progress and involving them fully in this ongoing process.
- To encourage pupils to exhibit good standards of work, effort and behaviour.
- To encourage the use of ICT in mathematics and co-operate in fulfilling the ICT curriculum.
- To encourage communication with parents and others responsible for pupils.
Coordinator is Mr. D. Wingrove.
