'If you'd like to help us at Finlay School,  please get in touch with a member of teaching staff'


Finlay Community School lies at the heart of the White City community and it benefits from lots of helpers.

The help we receive from parents is invaluable and is much appreciated by staff; it also shows the value parents place in children’s learning and children benefit from this.  Parents interested in helping in school, and who have the necessary free time, should speak to any member of the teaching staff.

Parents can help in many different ways, including:

  1. Listening to children read – this is more helpful than you sometimes may realise!

  2. Sharing skills and interests e.g. talking about their job, bringing in an aspect of their work to share with the children, using photographs to explain their role, etc

  3. Supporting teachers  on educational visits

  4. Making costumes for productions

Regular helpers in school are all checked by the Independent Safeguarding Authority in line with child protection guidelines.

If you are interested in helping in school, and have the necessary free time, please speak to any member of the teaching staff or contact our Family Service Manager, Michelle Bryce.
