Volunteer Programme

Would you like to join us as a volunteer?

We are now offering volunteering opportunities in each of our schools.  Volunteers make a huge difference to our children and young people, and are greatly valued for the support they offer our staff.

Volunteering can take many forms including:

  • helping small groups of children with art and craft
  • working with small groups of pupils or individual pupils to assist them in their learning
  • supporting community engagement and activities
  • supporting school activities (which could include swimming, horseriding, sailing, school visits etc.)

You may even have a talent that you would like to share that you think would benefit the children's learning and enjoyment!


As part of our volunteer programme

  1. Volunteers will be invited to attend an initial information session to learn about our schools and the volunteering opportunities at the Eden Academy
  2. All volunteers will have an opportunity to visit the school of their choice and will have access to a basic induction training session prior to joining us
  3. As part of our safeguarding process, we would ask volunteers to provide two references and complete an Enhanced DBS application prior to them beginning volunteering at our schools
