Get Involved

There are various ways you can get involved at Cottons Farm Primary Academy!

We encourage parents to get involved in various ways from attending trips to individual reading. We have a small fundraising team “Friends of Cottons Farm” 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 interested in helping us to raise funds, please contact the school office.


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 Cottons Farm Primary Academy.

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 the office or email subject: Volunteering.

All volunteers will have an interview with the Principal.

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 the school office or email subject: Work Placement.

If we are able to consider a place for you we will arrange an interview with the Principal.
