Provider Access Policy

Priory Policy Statement on Provider Access

The Priory Pembroke Academy: Provider Access Policy

Introduction

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 offer. This complies with the academy’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.

Our academy is part of The Priory Federation of Academies Trust.

  • The Trust’s mission is to improve the life chances of its pupils to enable them to become true citizens of the world.
  • The Trust values the achievement of excellence through the development of: knowledge, curiosity, generosity, courage and passion.

The academy works with partner providers who share its mission and values and who can demonstrate that they have the appropriate capacity and support systems in place for our pupils.

Our academy has its own careers programme, using impartial advice that supports students in developing a wider appreciation of the opportunities for progression. 

Pupil entitlement

All pupils in years 8 to 13 are entitled:

  • to find out about apprenticeship opportunities and technical education qualifications, 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 apprenticeships and technical education  through options events, assemblies and group discussions and taster events;
  • to understand how to make applications for the full range of academic and technical courses.
