All parents, staff and governors are automatically members of the PTFA. The committee meets regularly, and helpers are requested via Newsletters and our Facebook page: Friends of Christchurch Junior School Dorset.
The PTFA have raised considerable sums of money over the years which have contributed substantially to the resources we offer the children. If you would like to find out more about the PTFA, please see the PTFA’s page.
We welcome parent and community volunteers into school to work with the children in an informal way by hearing reading, playing games and supporting learning. All regular volunteers are checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) in line with Government legislation for the safety of the children. If you would like to help, please make use of the Volunteer Expression of Interest form which can be downloaded from the Volunteers page on our website. This will help us to match your talents and interests to the school’s needs.
Another important way in which volunteers can help the school is by assisting with some of our many off-site visits and activities. Letters explaining these activities usually include a request for parental help.
