The senior leadership team consists of the Head and Deputy Head teachers.

The school runs a Breakfast club and After School Club as well as activity clubs on most days after school.

Expectations

As a student on work placement or volunteer, you will gain very valuable experience at Angel Road Junior School but in return we will expect you to work hard and with respect for the staff and children.

Angel Road Junior is a very busy school and we expect you to be proactive and take initiative. Whether you are in school on work placement or as a volunteer, you will work in a designated class or year group and support the members of staff by following any requests they may have to help the children. This could mean for example; listening to children read, helping with art/craft or working with a small group of children towards a specific goal. We also welcome volunteers to help with visits which take place throughout the school year; specific details of these will be given for each trip.

In our school, we are strongly committed to safeguarding procedures to ensure the well-being of children. Please read our safeguarding policy which can be found on the website before contacting the school. Volunteers and work experience students will be subject to Enhanced DBS and vetting procedures.
