Once the form is processed, the applicant will be invited to an induction meeting regarding expectations, policies and timetable/availability and then asked to sign the 'Volunteer Helpers Policy' and complete a DBS check with our Business Manager.
Once Induction is complete and DBS is successful, volunteers will be asked to confirm availability before being placed in an appropriate year group.
