Provider Access Policy Statement

This policy sets out the schools arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the schools legal obligations under section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Procedure

A provider wishing to request access should contact Mrs Pilling AHT and Careers Lead

School Switch Board: 01772 421909

Email: l.pilling@lsmchs.com

A number of events, integrated into the school Careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carers.

The annual Careers Fair in November gives all providers a platform for this. Please contact the Mrs Pilling if you have not received a formal invitation to this event (June – September are when invites go out) and you would like to attend.

Careers Inspiration and Guidance

‘Every child should leave school prepared for life in modern Britain… All children should receive a rich provision of classroom and extra-curricular activities that develop a range of character attributes, such as resilience and grit, which underpin success in education and employment. High quality, independent careers guidance is also crucial in helping pupils emerge from school more fully rounded and ready for the world of work. Young people want and need to be well-informed when making subject and career decisions’.

Department for Education

At St Mary’s we take our statutory responsibility for delivering high quality impartial Careers Inspiration and Guidance very seriously, and we are proud of the effective provision we have developed and are continuing to develop. To strive for the very best provision possible, we are constantly monitoring and evaluating the activities taking place in school, receiving formal feedback from pupils, parents/carers and all employers and training providers engaged in the activities.

Extra-curricular activities and visits

Over the course of the programme, pupils will benefit from the opportunity to visit Runshaw College, Cardinal Newman College, the University of Central Lancashire and the www.whatcareerlive.co.uk event in Liverpool. In addition, gifted and talented careers activity days take place at various institutions and are led by all departments across school. Equally, off site motivational activity days are being organised this year, for all levels of learners.

Facilities:

We enjoy the luxury of a dedicated careers library in the heart of the school. Pupils can find a plethora of prospectuses, posters, leaflets and booklets which they may take away. Our programme is delivered in the Learning Resource Centre, the Drama Theatre and various classrooms. We also enjoy a wide range of resources including job dictionaries and computers.
