PROVIDER ACCESS STATEMENT (Baker Clause)

  

Careers Guidance and Access for Education and Training Providers

Read our provider access statement below

At High Storrs School, we take safeguarding and the safety of our students very seriously. We expect all visitors and volunteers to share this commitment. You can find out more about the school's safeguarding policy here.


Parents/ Carers

Parents and carers are the most influential factor in students’ decisions about the future. Your support and encouragement influences their choices, and the guidance you provide will be invaluable to their eventual achievements and career pathways.

There are some very simple and practical steps you can take to support your child.

  • Talk to them about their current educational attainment and estimated grades and encourage them to aim high (the skills shortages of the future will be in higher level jobs)
  • Discuss where they want to be and research how to get there (there are links below to some great resources)
  • Encourage them to get the advice and experiences they need to help them achieve their goals
