Provider Access Policy

This section statement sets out the school’s 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 school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997. All students in years 8-13 are entitled: 

Opportunities for access can come through a number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, that offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or their parents/carers. Opportunities beyond dovetailing our published programme are also welcome.

The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Lead or a member of their team. Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature at the school.

Any provider, and any individual, wishing to discuss further CEIAG should contact:
