Work Experience and Volunteering

Riverside School supports work experience and volunteer placements subject to suitability and capacity. Applications can be made using the form below. To volunteer, you must be over 16 years old.

Once we receive your application and the declaration below, we will contact you to acknowledge receipt. We will consider your application and may contact you again to discuss suitability before confirming whether your placement has been successful.

Please ensure that you send a fully completed application to us at least 30 days before a placement should take place to enable us to follow our Safeguarding Procedures.

Please note, we are unable to accept or respond to any new applications received between 1st July and 30th September. 

Please note that if you are a family member of a pupil at school, your placement would not be in their class.

The Department for Education has issued supplementary advice to its “Keeping Children Safe in Education" statutory guidance and details a new requirement for childcare disqualification checks to be carried out on relevant staff working in schools and academies. Please see letter below and Keeping Children Safe in Education: Childcare Disqualification Requirements Employee/Worker/Volunteer Declaration. You will be required to complete the declaration, should a placement be offered.
