Our Commitment - Baker Clause statement
As part of our commitment to informing Tupton Hall School students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to our students.
Tupton Hall School proactively seeks to build on close working relationships with providers to speak with students, which may include school assemblies, employer and provider engagement events or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting GCSE, post-16 choices.
In the first instance, requests by providers should be sent to the school's Careers Lead, Mrs L Waterhouse, with a minimum of 6 weeks' lead time. All requests will be considered on the basis of; staffing, availability to support the activity, clashes with other planned activity, trips or visits to the school, interruption to preparation for examinations and space availability to host the activity.
As part of the Careers Education and Guidance programme at Tupton Hall School, all Year 10 students are expected to take part in a compulsory work experience programme with an employer. The aim is to help you gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world of work and all that it entails.
The following documents will help parents, carers and employers understand the Tupton Hall work experience programme and may also suggest ways that parents and carers can help their child find a placement.
- Student Request Form
- Parent Letter
- Agreement Form
- Student Login Process
For students there is a step by step booklet below to help you get the most out of your Work Experience, including ideas to help you start planning:
Please note that you can contact and communicate with employers yourself, but to formally agree a work experience placement all parts of the Employer and Parent Agreement Form (PDF) will need to be signed, completed and returned to school by the cut-off date.
Employers must confirm that they have Employers' Liability Insurance or be willing to obtain it. They must also be Health and Safety checked before the placement can go ahead.
We wish to encourage all Y10 students to actively search for a Work Experience placement as soon as possible. June is a very popular time for schools in our area to take part in WEX so the sooner you apply and secure a placement the better to avoid disappointment.
