Harris Academy St. John’s Wood Provider Access Policy


This policy statement sets out HASJW’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purpose of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

All pupils in years 8-13 are entitled:

  • to find out about technical education qualifications and apprenticeships opportunities, as part of a careers programme which provides information on the full range of education and training options available at each transition point;

  • to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.

For Parents and Carers

  • To be fully involved by supporting the Academy in its development of the CEG curriculum. Parents will be expected to take an active part in the CEG delivery whether it be through home-based discussions, actively working with students on career planning tasks and even working with the Academy though providing local support in the form of guest speakers.

For Teachers and Tutors

  • Deliver the CEG unit as organized by the teacher in charge of careers, ensuring that they deliver the units in a motivating and stimulating way that encourages their tutees to become self-aware and to explore their career development and career management;
  • Ensure that they support the delivery of the CEG that is relevant to their own subject area’s programmes of study and schemes of work. This will primarily be achieved through the enterprise contracted unit of work which will develop enterprise and employability skills;
