Parent and Volunteers Policy

Tithe Barn Primary School is a community where pupils, parents and teachers collaborate and work in partnership. We believe that parents and carers involvement at School can add enormous value to our children’s educational experience, actively encouraging and supporting the children’s learning whilst fostering the idea of the ‘School family’. Our policy aims to ensure that our pupils benefit from parent/volunteer helpers whilst protecting their happiness, welfare and safety.FINAL Parent.Volunteer_Helpers_Policy 2.7.14
