Community Links and Media

Do you or any of your family have any skills or links to the community that Sandfield could benefit from? If the answer is yes, we would love to hear from you.  Please let us know by completing the Parental Skills Form

All parent volunteers, volunteers from the community and contractors are subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Parents, Carers, Grandparents, Governors and Friends

Parents, carers, grandparents, governors and friends also come into school in various ways including craft, reading, sport, handwriting and cookery.  The help of parents is vital to support events, trips and enrich learning. If you are able to support the school on a regular basis then please inform the school office so an appropriate location and induction programme can be organised.  Curriculum themes also provide regular opportunities for parents to come in and work alongside their children and see displays, presentations and assemblies.

Where financially possible, we always seek to use local contractors and suppliers e.g. Office Gold in Godalming, Guildford Lock and Safe, CEF in Guildford and so on.
