Ockley Green Welcomes Your Support!

Volunteering at School or During Field Trips
For the safety of students and staff, all volunteers are required to submit a Volunteer Application and Volunteer Background Check, after reviewing the PPS volunteer Code of Conduct and an online training document. Everything you need can be found here: https://www.pps.net/volunteer We encourage you to complete this process as soon as possible, as the paperwork can take up to a few weeks to go through.
