The Cedar School ‘Partners in learning’

We are looking for a positive, flexible and fun-loving volunteer to support our work with Polish children who have complex learning and physical difficulties in the school.

We have already made a good start and our children are full members of our learning community but we just need some additional support to help facilitate learning activities (prepared by Cedar staff) at key times in their week.

The role would be flexible and hugely enjoyable as our children offer so much back and are a joy to work with. We will provide a comprehensive induction programme and a full network of support to ensure you would equally become a valuable member of our school.

Our mission statement is ‘Partners in Learning’ and we very much believe in team work in the school. Some paid supply work may also be available once established in the school.

The project may develop and blossom but initially we would be looking for someone to work 2 mornings (or afternoons) sessions a week for a maximum of 4 hours. Contact EU welcome initially.
