Get Involved

There are various ways you can get involved at Ash Croft!

We encourage parents to get involved in various ways from attending trips to individual reading. We have a small fundraising team “Friends of Ash Croft ” and would welcome new members with new ideas and contacts. If you work for a company that is able to sponsor or donate to fundraising in the school please email  subject: fundraising. If you are asked to help or you would like to help please see Mrs E Mills in the school office to go through some paperwork!


Volunteers are always needed from the local community.

  • Do you have time to spare?

  • Do you have a skill that can be shared?

If so, you could volunteer at Ash Croft.

We often need volunteer readers and extra adults on school trips.

All volunteers will need to provide a reference and have an enhanced DBS check by the Disclosure and Barring service.

Please speak to Mrs E Mills   in the office or email  subject: Volunteer

All volunteers will have an interview with the Head of Academy.

Work placements

If you are on a course requiring a placement or a potential Bed, PGCE , Schools Direct student we will try to accommodate you. All work placements require an enhanced DBS check and a reference or documentation from the College.

Please speak to Mrs E Mills in the office or email subject: Work Placement.
