Volunteers in School

Volunteers at Gomer Infant School

We really appreciate the time our volunteers are able to give Gomer Infant School. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the school office on 02392 580 808 / adminoffice@gomer-inf.hants.sch.uk.

In order to comply with our legal obligations we will ask you to complete a volunteers application form, a childcare disqualification declaration form, and a rehabilitation of offenders declaration form. Our volunteers are DBS checked before coming into school to work with the children.

Useful information

We have put together a few handy hints and pointers to help our volunteers and students feel at home and understand the school.

If you are a volunteer Mrs Lloyd, our Head of School, is your first point of call – Mrs Lloyd deals with placing volunteers around the school and will able to answer any queries you may have.  For students this will be the teacher of the class in which you have been placed.

Mrs Julie Baker, Office Strategic Lead, deals with the safeguarding and other organisational matters.

As part of becoming a volunteer, or student we ask that you read and sign our Volunteers in School Agreement and make sure you have read our Health & Safety for Visitors leaflet.

We also recommend visiting our Vision, Aims and Values page, and having a look at our Volunteers Policy and Behaviour Policy which can be found on our Policies page.

Our class teacher/s and teaching assistants will also help you with any questions or concerns you may have.


Our class names are:

  • Year R          Hedgehogs & Squirrels
  • Year 1           Dolphins & Seals
  • Year 2          Bumblebees & Butterflies

The school day starts at 8.50 am – lunchtime is 12.00 until 1.00 pm, the school day finishes at 3.20 pm. 

Please come to the school office to sign in and collect a visitor’s badge.

If you  are in school in the morning you are welcome to have a cup of coffee in the staff room.

If you are in school all day we will make a space available in one of our rooms for you to eat your lunch.

We would also like to request that volunteers and students do not wear denim or wear open backed shoes such as flip-flops or stiletto heels in school as this is part of Gomer Infant School’s Code of Conduct regarding suitable dress in the school environment.

Thank you for joining us at Gomer Infant School.  We really value all the help we have from our volunteers and students.

Please remember the teacher and teaching assistant of the class you are supporting will guide you with tasks and also be there to help you with any questions or queries you might have.
