Breakspeare School recognises the unique and special contribution that volunteers make to society and in particular to the work of this school.

Volunteer involvement in appropriate tasks and projects is welcomed as it has a positive effect on our pupils. Volunteers bring a variety of skills and a fresh perspective, adding value to all activities and
supporting our sustainability. They have a unique role which is quite different from that of paid workers. They can offer time and passion to a particular project, cause or issue, and by involving volunteers

Breakspeare School is able to build stronger links with the community in which it works. Volunteers act as ambassadors, promoting our activities and services.
