Working, Training and Volunteering

7 Bible Verses About Helping OthersAs a successful and well established school with extremely low levels of staff turnover, we are a sought after organisation for volunteers, trainees and students. We have strong links with Guildford and Godalming Colleges, often hosting students studying Early Education or Childcare. Each year ex-pupils return to complete work experience from Broadwater, Rodborough and Guildford County School.

We have several volunteers who visit on a weekly basis, hearing individual children read and supporting group work. If you would like to join this merry band, please speak to the school office. All volunteers will be asked to complete a DSB safeguarding check.

As part of the Godalming Learning Partnership, we work closely with local schools. From September 2019 we have partnered with Winchester University to provide 10 initial teacher training (ITT) places for local graduates across Godalming Schools. One of the first group of trainees is now one of our brilliant teachers! Want to apply for September  2023? Link:

At Farncombe School the health, safety and wellbeing of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff and governors to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils and promoting their wellbeing. We are committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice. All school staff have received training in child protection and are aware of the procedure for passing on welfare concerns.
