The process of planning for Post-16 education starts with a discussion when the child is in year 9 (see Post-16 Process Map), followed by Annual Review meetings, interviews with the LA Connexions Adviser and discussions between the school, parents/carers and the young person.
Marjory Kinnon provides careers guidance and support for pupils and parents in conjunction with the Careers Advisor in Hounslow 14-19 service.
The advisor attends Annual Reviews and visits pupils in school to interview them and explore Post 16 options. The advisor supports parents with phone calls and advice linked to offers, destinations and transition.
The service also provides a Year 9 careers and destinations meeting for parents and pupils in Year 9.
The school has a work related learning curriculum in KS4. The Gatsby benchmarks underpin the curriculum and provision (please see samples to the right). The offer also includes a term of College in Year 11 with linked visits to West Thames for taster units that include: catering, mechanics, retail, hair and beauty, and childcare options (subject to changes).
The school also runs a bespoke careers fair day in July where pupils can find out about careers and fill in job applications and experience mock interviews.
The children also get in house work experiences that include running a café and supporting teachers in the primary department.
There are 2 main pathways for the pupils:
A local college supported education provision
A special school 6th form
There is currently only one Special school 6th form provider in Hounslow that is Oaklands.
Responsibility and oversight for careers is held by Ms S Starr- Deputy Headteacher - Secondary.
