Volunteer Vacancies: Activities Club Facilitators

We are looking for willing parents/carers to help support the Activities Club on Friday evenings. 

We have a fantastic number of children attending and we are lucky that a small group of amazing volunteer parents and staff are currently doing a brilliant job of running things every week.  If we had more people to willing to support, it would take the pressure off individual volunteers as they wouldn't have to come every week. If you are interested in helping, we can raise a DBS check quickly and even if you can only help once or twice a half term, it would really help.

Contact us by email, ask at the school office or catch Mrs Richards in the playground if you are interested in being involved.


Volunteer Vacancies: Friends of PJS

We are looking for willing parents/carers to help support our Friends of Pennington Junior School.

We have a fantastic group of amazing volunteer parents and staff who run our FoPJS, roles including helping with cake stalls, running school discos, organising raffles and fundraising events, working with the community and with children within school - it is a great way to make new friends, get to know your children's friends and make a difference within the school community.

Contact us by email, ask at the school office or catch Mrs Richards in the playground if you are interested in being involved..
