Rowhill school’s vision for pupil’s aspirations

Rowhill school’s careers curriculum is developed around the core principles of pupil’s aspirations to be:

  • Successful learners
  • Confident individuals
  • Responsible citizens
  • Effective contributors

Rowhill school will achieve these aspirations by:

  • Providing a differentiated curriculum incorporating vocational opportunities.
  • Providing an appropriate environment with specialist support.
  • Offering a variety of qualifications to meet learner’s academic ability.
  • Enabling pupils to develop coping strategies, their social and communication skills and increase their independence.
  • Support families and pupils with the transition process.

For more information please see our Ethos & Values page.

 

Working with others

The wider community - We believe that the school has a duty to share best practice and this will be done by:

  • Working closely with our partner schools within the Kent SEN Cooperative Trust.
  • Linking with local businesses and workplace settings.
  • Linking with local colleges and other alternative post 16 placements.
  • Working with the Careers & Enterprise Company to deliver our careers programme.

 

Careers Education

Pupils receive a comprehensive careers education programme:

  • Rowhill school delivers 3 units through AQA to support the careers curriculum – Personal Action Planning – Making Informed Careers Choices – Applying For Jobs And Courses.
  • Pupils receive independent careers advice.
  • Pupils receive support with application and post 16 transition process.
  • Pupils have access to careers and further education material.
  • Rowhill school has worked with The Learning Shop at Bluewater to gain career opportunities.
  • Rowhill school is working with the Careers & Enterprise company to offer learners opportunities to speak to employers.
  • We work with staff and local community to have external speakers come to the school to talk to the pupils about the opportunities available to them beyond Rowhill.
  • Pupils attend events outside of school to gain insight into the place of work i.e. Thames Water, Charlton Athletic.

 

Impact: Our goal is for all pupils to gain their post 16 destinations to further develop themselves and support them with their career.
