All volunteers will have an initial induction meeting with a member of our Senior Leadership Team.


Pupils at Merefield respond well to consistency so we ask volunteers to commit to a consistent approach whatever their allocated roles.


The school is committed to supporting volunteers and understands that time must be given for all new volunteers to settle in. However, if the school leaders view the volunteer placement as unsuccessful, the school retains the right to terminate the placement.


All volunteers are subject to school protocol and policies, including Safeguarding protocols.
