There is no set date for schools to reopen. Schools will remain closed to most until scientific advice indicates it is right to reopen and the five tests set out to beat this virus have been met.

Provider Access Policy

This policy statement sets out our 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 offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Pupil entitlement

The full pupil entitlement can be found in our Careers, Policy but includes the following for all pupils in years 7-13:

  • how 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
  • hear from a range of local providers about the opportunities they offer, including technical education and apprenticeships – through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events
  • understanding 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 our Careers Lead, Mr Phil Wilson, Assistant Principal on 0208 304 4926 or via email to p.wilson@harrisfalconwood.org.uk.
