The academy is committed to ensuring that each and every one of our students leaves us with the skills and attributes required to take their place in the world of work and further education. We are fully compliant with statutory guidance, and the following are embedded in our practice:

  • Students have the opportunity to access independent careers guidance (yr8-11)
  • Our policy statement on provider access enables opportunities for students to
    learn from providers about approved technical education qualifications or
    apprenticeships (yr8-11)
  • Provider visits are made available to all students in the relevant year group
  • Independent careers guidance provided is presented in an impartial manner,
    showing no bias or favouritism towards a particular institution, education or
    work option, and includes information on the full range of education or training
    options, including apprenticeships and technical education routes (yr10-11)
  • Where pupils have EHC plans, their annual reviews include a focus on
    adulthood, including employment (yr8-11)

The academy takes the views of stakeholders seriously, and every opportunity is used to seek feedback. Views of parents were collated at the recent year 11 Parents' Evening, and feedback is sought from students for all educational and career based visits. The academy is well on track to secure all eight Gatsby benchmarks by 2020.
