Volunteers

We are lucky to benefit, on a daily basis, from the fantastic efforts of our dedicated volunteers, who bring with them a range of skills and experience that enhance the learning opportunities, achievement and enjoyment of the children at our school.

We greatly value and appreciate the time and effort that each of our volunteers generously gives to our school, whether it is on a regular or more ad hoc basis. Our volunteers come from varied parts of our community:

Corporate volunteers

Provided to us by charities who recruit, train, vet and match employees at local firms to schools. They usually come into school for half an hour per week to support Key Stage 2 children who need extra reading help. Our teachers liaise with the volunteers to ensure that the support is tailored.

John Lewis Clubs

Craft, gardening and storytelling clubs run and funded by John Lewis and their employees for half an hour per week for Years 1, 3 and 5.

Community tutors

Ex-teachers and other people from the local community with expertise in education who work with pupils in upper Key Stage 2 who have been identified as needing some extra support. Our teachers liaise with the tutors and provide the relevant work.

School-based volunteers

Pupils from the sixth form in local schools who assist teachers with classroom activities, hearing children read and support with clubs, e.g. ICT club.

Work experience

Pupils from other local schools (often ex-Burdett-Coutts pupils) carrying out two weeks’ work experience in school as part of gaining experience of what working in a school is like.

Initial Teacher Training students

ITT students from local universities carrying out placements where they learn from Burdett-Coutts staff and are mentored by a senior teacher as they work towards achievement of a degree or other teaching qualification.

Other local volunteers

Local volunteers who are interested in joining the teaching profession who help in school in a variety of ways whilst gaining experience of the education system.

Our volunteers support and assist with:

  • Hearing children read
  • Working with small groups of children
  • Working alongside individual children
  • Undertaking art & craft activities
  • Working in our school Learning Resource Centre
  • Running or assisting with in-school clubs
  • Working with the children on computers
