The school places great value on work experience and it is part of the school’s policy to offer this opportunity to all eligible pupils. We also acknowledge the educational benefits your child will receive; confidence and independence are two of the most important factors. This takes place towards the end of Year 10, when students go out into the ‘world of work’. Students are involved in arranging their own placements. The school monitors students during their placements. All placements are rigorously checked for the relevant insurances and health and safety regulations.
The dates of Work Experience 2019 are Monday 8th July – Friday 12th July. It is absolutely essential that these dates are adhered to. There is no provision for other negotiated dates. There is a suspension of the Year 10 curriculum for this week and therefore it is important that all pupils are on placements during this time.
