Join in at the School

At Balsall Common Primary School we don't like to see parents sitting on the sidelines or feeling left out. There are many ways in which you can support your children and the rest of the school whether it's in the classroom, playing sports, going on trips or lending a hand at one of the prestigious PTA events.

To find out more about helping out pop into school and have a chat with Sue Clinton in the school office and she will be able to give you more details. Please note that all helpers in school have to be DBS/CRB checked.
