DBS Application and Renewal

At Thorns we feel that the invovlement of parents in children's education is vital and we encourage active participation in many ways.  Volunteers may be able to help on a regular basis and commit to a time slot each week whereas others may offer to help when required.  In whatever way parents can offer their time, we are always extremely grateful.  Some parents like to help  in their orw child's class and some prefer to help elsewhere in the school.  Our volunteers are invaluable in assisting the teachers with general duties, helping in classrooms with activities such as reading, art and design, gardening, swimming, themed weeks, sporting activities and the library or with educational visits oustide the school.


Please find belwo a link to apply for or renew your DBS.  Details on how to apply can be found in the DBS Registration Letter.


Before issuing a DBS we ask volunteers to read the following documents and complete the attached letter to say that you have read the documents completed including the "Register Of Personal Relationships With Families Outside Of A Professional Relationship" .
