We aim to ensure a high quality of vocational and careers education for young people with special educational needs, to be delivered in a meaningful and appropriate way for their needs and circumstances.
Our vision is to equip our pupils
with skills, understanding and confidence to make a positive transition at the end of their time at the school whether this be in further education, employment or independent and supported living.
We have high career aspirations, and we aim to widen our pupils’ ambitions for employment.
Through opportunities for taster sessions, work experience, mentoring, inspiring speakers, and role models we aim to support help young people to make informed decisions about their future aspiration.
All young people in Years 7-14 are entitled
- To find out about Further and Higher Education qualifications, supported internships, apprenticeship opportunities, paid employment and volunteering as part of their careers programme
- To hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer through events, Jobs Fairs, College Links, EHCP reviews and transition planning meetings
- To understand how to make applications for Further Education courses, supported internships, apprenticeships, paid employment and volunteering opportunities
- To know about alternative provision in the community for those where further education or employment is not suitable

The Government expects all schools to use the eight Gatsby Benchmarks to improve their careers provision:
