Get involved and support Rudston Primary School.

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers at Rudston.

Here is an idea of things you could do to help:

  • Helping in the classrooms
  • Support in our nursery/after hours clubs
  • Reading with Children
  • Maths with children
  • Library support
  • Accompanying children on trips and visits out of school
  • Curriculum Support
  • Gardening 
  • Helping at PTA events
  • Any special skills that you would like to share…

Please note, for roles within the classroom, it is unlikely that you would be given your child’s class to help in. Initially we would like you to commit to carrying out the role for a term after you have had a go at it and made sure it is something you want to carry on doing.

If nothing leaps out at you, but you have another idea of how you could get involved, please note it down at the end of the form and we’ll be in touch. There will be more opportunities in the future– we have started with a select number of roles to make sure we can get you involved smoothly.

Download the application form and hand it into the school office. We will then contact you to arrange for you to be police checked, receive initial support and advice on your chosen role and then to come in and help.
