National Volunteers Week – 1st to 7th June 2019
Organisations across the UK will be thanking their volunteers and celebrating the power of volunteering during National Volunteers Week taking place between 1st to 7th June.
At The Axholme Academy our most important and influential volunteers are members of the Governing Board that work tirelessly throughout the year in working with and supporting the senior leadership of the school to drive forward school improvement. They visit the school regularly meeting a range of staff and students; they challenge senior leaders and hold them accountable and celebrate our successes.
We also benefit from a range of volunteers who give freely of their time to provide –
- additional support in subject areas such as mathematics
- student support and counselling
- additional staffing for academy trips and visits
- additional input from business and industry to enhance subject teaching in, for example, information technology and financial management
- sports coaching in, for example rugby union
We also regularly welcome back former students who talk about their own further education and career experiences to support our careers education programme and help existing students make informed choices about their futures.
To all our volunteers we say a huge thank you!
