Provider Access Policy

Introduction

This policy sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at Moulsham High 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.


Student Entitlement

All students in Years 8 to 13 are entitled to:

  • Find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point
  • Hear about a range of local providers and the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships, through options events, assemblies, group discussions and taster events
  • Understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses

Management of Provider Access Requests

Procedure

A provider wishing to request access should contact Mr O'Leary, Assistant Headteacher, by calling 01245 260101 or emailing loleary@moulshamhigh.org.

Opportunities for access

A number of events, integrated into the schools careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to students and their parents/carers. These include: a careers convention for Years 10 to 13 in the Autumn term; a Post-16 evening in the Autumn term and a KS4 Options Evening in the Spring term.

Please speak to Mr O'Leary to identify the most suitable opportunity for you.

Premises and Facilities

The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meetings rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make AV and other specialist equipment available to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the Careers Leader or a member of their team.

Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course material at the school where access to it will be given to all relevant students.
