Sidestrand Hall School is committed to ensuring that all students have access to impartial information about the full range of learning and training routes that are available to them after year 11.
We are keen to work in partnership with external providers who can inform our students about post-16 pathways on offer. For example: colleges providing vocational courses, apprenticeship providers and Higher Education institutions offering post-18 courses. Additionally, we welcome involvement from employers, parents, charitable organisations and other stakeholders.
Opportunities to engage with students may include, for example: school assemblies or talks, employer and provider engagement events, remote information sessions using video conferencing tools or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis at parent’s evenings or providers’ fairs.
We are happy to consider requests from providers to speak to students. We will also proactively seek to build relationships with these partners as we plan our careers and enterprise activity throughout the school year, to ensure that providers have multiple opportunities to speak to students and their parents across years 7-11
All requests will be considered on the basis of: staffing availability to support the activity, clashes with other planned activity, interruption to preparation for examinations, or rooming and space availability to host the activity.
