The Importance of Volunteers

At Purfleet Primary Academy we welcome volunteers to support the work of the school and to support those wishing to gain experience in a school setting.

All volunteers at Purfleet Primary Academy will be made to feel welcome. The types of activities that volunteers are engaged in include:

  • Listening to children read
  • Working with small groups of children
  • Working alongside individual children within the classroom
  • Accompanying school visits


Becoming a Volunteer

The school regularly receives offers of voluntary support and requests for voluntary placements which we welcome; however we are limited to the number of volunteers we can accommodate at one time. For this reason the school operates a volunteer waiting list system in accordance with our Student & Volunteer Policy which can be found in the 'Policies' section.


Anyone wishing to become a volunteer should email [email protected]


Purfleet Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. If we are able to offer a voluntary placement, we will contact you to invite you in for an interview. An enhanced DBS check may be necessary according to the nature of the placement.
