“Hello, my name is David Sharp. I’m the Schools Worker here at Oaks Community Church, and I just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and what we do as a church to support local schools.
I have been a part of the Oaks for several years now and became the Schools Worker in 2019.
Since then, my aim has been to build relationships with schools in both Dronfield and Eckington, finding creative ways to serve and resource them. This has looked different in each school, but, more often than not, involves supporting teachers in lessons, leading assemblies and setting up school clubs.
I would love to hear from you. If you would like to explore how I could serve your school, please get in touch with the contact form found at the bottom of this page.”

What Schools Say…
“I can highly recommend David to work alongside staff and school communities. He is a great Schools Worker and is always willing to support schools and their ethos. On a personal level, David is approachable, professional, and reliable. Whenever we have a meeting about how he can support our school he is punctual and will go above and beyond as he is willing to adapt to the needs/ requests of the school.
David has worked as part of our community since November 2019. He is always willing to come into school and support individual children, classes and even present assemblies to the whole school.” – RE Coordinator, Dronfield
Our work with TLG:
As part of our work with schools in our community, we partner with an education charity called Transforming Lives for Good (TLG). They are a fantastic charity who resource and train volunteers from our church to coach children in need of support during their time at school, and develop their emotional literacy.
If you would like to find out more about TLG as a charity or what TLG could look like for you please do get in touch with us or visit TLG’s website at: www.tlg.org.uk
