Have put my crime check form into school. Going to take 3-4 weeks to come back.
Just wondered if any of you helped out at your kid's schools and what sort of things they ask you to do.
I am really looking forward to helping dds school out. I'm a SAHM so it will give me something to do instead of the usual household chores.
I started last week at ds's school, he's in reception. I'm only doing an hour, once a week.
Last week i had to help the children make mini-beasts. I really enjoyed it but wish i could do more. Dd is just 21 months so obviously not at playschool yet i'm sure when she starts i'll get more involved
I totally agree with you, as a SAHM it's a pleasant break from the ironing
I help out in ds's school once a week. I told his teacher that I specifically wanted to do art and craft as I find that the easiest and most enjoyable. She was fine about that and makes sure that's what I do. I think she is just so grateful that I go in and I do really enjoy it.
They are very thorough with checking in schools now. Had to fill in a form with all my details including previous addresses. Had to take 3 documents for them to photocopy too with proof of identity.
I help out at dd2's pre-school one morning a week and I didn't have to have a check for that. If I was a permanent worker I would have to fill out another form (seperate from dd1s school one - as it is a different location). At pre-school I am limited to things I can help with, am not allowed to take children to the toilet or change their clothes.
