Baker Clause Policy Statement:
As part of our commitment to informing Eckington 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. Eckington School proactively seek 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 – (Laura Moor) 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 or rooming and space availability to host the activity.
