PEOPLE interested in working in primary schools are invited to take part in a new course run by the Workers’ Educational Association.

‘Helping in Schools’, for parents and other voluntary helpers, starts at Kirkburton CE First School on Monday, April 21 and runs for 10 weeks between 9.30am and 3pm.

The course provides an overview of how schools work, and how children learn about literacy and numeracy. It also includes sessions on managing behaviour and special educational needs.

On the programme, course members will work for two hours a week in their child’s primary school.

People interested in attending the course should make contact with the headteacher of their child’s primary school.
