The sessions run from 9.30am – 12:30pm (please see below and our registration form for dates).
At your introductory session you will be given important information about the Academy including Health & Safety and Child Protection. You will also be taken on a tour of the Academy. Towards the end of the session you will have a short 1:1 discussion with a member of the Ash Field Team. Together you will discuss volunteering options specific to you such as days, times and the age of the pupils you would like to work with or the requirements of your placement. We will also ask to see your current DBS (CRB).

Where possible we aim to reply within 5 working days (term time). Please note the admin department is not open during school holidays.
After the introductory day you will receive an email from Ash Field Academy to confirm whether or not a place is available. If you are offered a position and have applied for a DBS through Ash Field Academy we will ask you to contact us once you have received your DBS. On receipt of this information we will confirm the arrangements of your placement including start date and time with you.
All volunteer placements are subject to receipt of a satisfactory reference.
A reference from a previous or present employer or from someone you work for as part of a volunteer placement is preferable. However, if this is not possible, a personal reference is acceptable for our volunteer placements. A personal reference can be provided by teachers, lecturers, group/club leaders, mentors, neighbours or family friends. However, your personal reference should not be written by someone who is solely a friend, partner/spouse or immediate relative (such as a parent or sibling). A reference from a previous or present employer or from someone you work for as part of a volunteer placement should be from an official business email address.
