Volunteers, Students & Trainees

From time to time we have people  who choose to spend time in Ferryfield to gain knowledge and skills in the work place. We believe this provides a rich and valuable experience for the children as everyone brings with them their own values and ideas. All adults working in Ferryfield hold a current Enhanced  Disclosure Check though the Protecting Vulnerable Groups scheme.
