The Vineyard School has always been fortunate enough to boast a committed and willing parental community. We have an active PTA and also a steady stream of parents and carers who afford their time to a variety of in-school activities (such as reading with the children and assisting with extra-curricular sport) and also school trips.
Volunteering opportunities are advertised via our regular school newsletters and in targeted ParentPings from specific classes and year groups. However, if you would like to put your name forward for general volunteering opportunities - including classroom activities and/or trips, or if you possess expertise which you feel might benefit the school in some way - then please email the School Office.
