Any business, college or independent training provider wanting to provide information to our students can contact Mrs S Richmond CEIAG co-ordinator, on 023 80891192 or via email email@example.com to organise a meeting. Please see full Policy Statement on provider access here.
The Academy believes that every individual should be prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life, and that this preparation should be an important and distinctive element of the curriculum.
The Academy will ensure that each pupil’s curriculum is broad and balanced to meet career aspirations as they develop, and that there will be equality of access to all teaching and learning strategies irrespective of gender, race, creed and ability. This will be achieved through consultation with the Local Board of Governors, teachers, pupils, parents/ carers, and the statutory Independent and impartial careers advice commissioned by the academy.
