Careers Programme - Provider Access Statement

Pupil Entitlement

The statutory guidance is relevant to all pupils in years 5-8 and we also consider young people’s developmental ages when preparing appropriate careers activities at Church Hill Middle School, ensuring that our pupils receive a careers programme which offers them opportunities to:

  • find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeship opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point.
  • hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships.
  • understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

Management of provider access requests.

Providers wishing to request access should contact: Sarah Major Careers Lead:

Telephone: 01527 962794


Opportunities for access

Our curriculum and careers programme include opportunities for providers to come into school to speak to our pupils and/or their parents/carers. These can be arranged during timetabled Careers days or at other suitable times. Please speak to our designated staff member to identify the most suitable opportunity for your organisation.


Premises and facilities

The school will make the main hall, classrooms or private meeting rooms available for discussions between the provider and students, as appropriate to the activity. The school will also make available AV and other specialist equipment to support provider presentations. This will all be discussed and agreed in advance of the visit with the designated staff member or a member of their team. Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature with the designated staff member, who will ensure that these are available for the pupils to have easy access.


Provider Access Requests Church Hill Middle School

We warmly welcome providers into our school and all requests will be given due consideration by Church Hill Middle School and our Senior Leadership link. Requests, however, will be refused if:

  • They impinge on students’ preparation for public or internal exams
  • They clash with other school events such as visits, other speakers, well-being days, school photographs, sports days, public or internal exams, parents’ communication events etc.
  • The school is unable to provide staff to support the presentation or talk due to previous commitments
  • An appropriate space for the talk or event is unable to be found due to timetabling clashes.

Church Hill Middle School welcomes parental and employer participation within our careers related activities.
