IN THIS SECTION
All schools must provide a curriculum that is broadly based, balanced and meets the needs of all pupils. Under section 78 of the Education Act 2002 and the Academies Act 2010, a PSHE curriculum:
Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and
Prepares pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
Alongside timetabled lessons, Years 8 to 11 follow a careers programme that is based on five key areas.
Moreover, our careers programme is delivered through our Theme Day provision whereby a part or full day off-timetable is used to cover elements of the programme e.g. employer interviews.
Lindsworth School works closely with Birmingham Careers Service. Their advisors are all qualified to QCF level 6 careers guidance and have enhanced DBS clearance. They work closely with local employers, training providers and voluntary organisations and use local knowledge to help pupils make informed decisions about their next steps.
