Guide for Adult Helpers
We value the contribution that Adult Helpers make to the children at Queen's and after discussion with many of the adult helpers have produced the guide in two formats, audio podcasts in an engaging question and answer format and a booklet. You can listen to the individual podcasts by clicking the play button alongside each of the podcasts or you can click here to go to a play list and listen to the whole podcast. You can download a copy of the booklet by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
You should also read Part 1 of the Department of Education document "Keeping children safe in education - Statutory guidance for schools and colleges". You can find the document on the www.gov.uk website here:
