Old Park School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced Child and Adult DBS will be required for certain positions within school. It is a criminal offence to apply for and undertake a position for which you are barred from doing so and any such instance will be reported to the police and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

We welcome volunteers in school and appreciate the time and expertise you can give. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the school office to find out more.
We also offer placements for students undertaking training in roles we have in school such as student teachers and teaching assistant students. Work experience placements are also offered, but please give us as much notice as possible for these!
All volunteers are required to have an enhanced DBS and undertake a variety of roles in school, depending on experience and availability. We have clear induction procedures for all volunteers and students to ensure everyone understands and adheres to our ethos.
