Important information for all vacancies.


At Springfield School we welcome volunteering from all members of the community.

People volunteer for many different reasons; to gain experience, because they have a skill to offer the pupils e.g. music, sports, computing, to try work in a school such as ours, because they have a skill to offer the school and sometimes just because they want to.

If you are interested in volunteering at Springfield School please contact Jo Donohoe on 01993 703963.
