How can I become more involved with nursery life?

Parent Volunteers

We welcome help in school/nursery from parents. For example, hearing readers (in school), art and craft activities and school trips. 

Please note that in order to help in nursery/school you need to complete an application form and provide two references (character ones only).  We also carry out a confidential police check for regular volunteers as standard. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the school office.

Friends of Sky

The nursery/school has a strong fund-raising group of parents and friends who support our initiatives. All parents on joining the nursery are automatically eligible to be part of the Friends of Sky.  Parents can become helpers at events throughout the academic year or become fully involved in the committee by putting themselves forward for election at the annual general meeting. 

Also, Friends of Sky have 2 informative social media groups in relation to the school/nursery: a WhatsApp group and a private Facebook group. Lots of information is shared in both groups: school reminders, local events, and get-togethers with the children and their families. They are also a space where you can ask questions and contribute with any events or ideas you may have yourself. If you would like to join either group, please contact the school office and we will put you in touch with the organisers.

Local Governing Board

There are a number of parent representatives on the governing body. Opportunities to become a parent governor may arise throughout the time your child is with us. When vacancies arise, parents are informed and invited to put themselves forward.
