Provider Access Policy


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

Pupil entitlement

All pupils in Years 8 - 11 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 hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships - through assemblies, group discussions and taster events;
  • to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.
Management of provider access requests

A provider wishing to request access should contact Mrs C Weightman, PA to Principal and Head of School, telephone 879967 ext 280 or email cweightman@thekingswoodacademy.org.

Opportunities for access
A number of events, integrated into the school careers programme, will offer providers an opportunity to come into school to speak to pupils and/or parents/carers.
