Take Shelter volunteer form for general & Y5 volunteer now online; roll up roll up!


The Air Raid Shelters under the DJS playground lay undiscovered for 35 years until the 1980’s and since then have vary rarely been opened up to the local community. FODJ and Mr Button decided to change all that by revitalising the shelters for the local community and to aid children’s learning.

The Take Shelter events celebrate the amazing history of DJS during the war years.Whilst the tours are taking place underground we will be hosting 1940s themed stalls and activities in the playground which will include a live music act each Saturday . To make the events a success we need parents to support us by volunteering to help with the following stalls and activities:

Dropping off

Please note that drop off is in the middle playground (Grantham Road entrance). On arrival, your child will be expected to wait with their class (look out for the class signs!) until they are signed in. You are welcome to wait with your child until they enter the building. Please do not stay for the disco – if you want to see the disco then PLEASE VOLUNTEER TO HELP! IT’S GREAT FUN! We need adult helpers!

Picking up

Please collect your child from the middle playground (Grantham Road entrance will be open). There will be helpers at the gate to ensure no child leaves unaccompanied. Please do ensure you are there to collect at the correct time as we always have some uncollected children at the end of events and have to contact parents.

Cinema Room

During the disco, we have a film running in one of the rooms as a quiet area. This will be a suitable PG rated cartoon – by buying a ticket, you are consenting to let your child watch this.


By buying a ticket, you are giving permission for your child to have their photograph taken in the photo booth. Copies only go to children featured in the photo. Photos of the events are also used on the secure school website and our FODJ noticeboards in school. Please let the office know if you do not wish your child to have their photo taken.

Behaviour Policy

The events are always great fun and the children are generally extremely well behaved! As always however, we have a zero tolerance policy for bad behaviour. Please make sure your child knows that if they misbehave, we will call you and you will have to collect them early from the office.
