Careers Guidance

Longcroft School & Sixth Form College is committed to providing high-quality careers guidance to our pupils and students. This commitment is underpinned by our values of Great Heart, Thought & Vision.  

Great Heart reminds us of the diversity of our community and the extent to which we believe that a well-structured, stable and reflective career development programme can help to promote personal well-being, raise aspirations, and improve the life chances of our pupils.  

We give Great Thought to how to best structure a programme to meet the needs of our young people, reflecting on what is successful and adapting the programme in the light of its outcomes and impacts on pupils and students.  

Finally, with Great Vision, we create a programme that seeks to open new horizons for our pupils and students, either within themselves through becoming aware of their potential futures or by creating opportunities for them to develop increased awareness of employers and educational providers.

We believe that every young person needs high-quality career guidance to make informed decisions about their future.  Good career guidance helps inspire pupils towards further study and enables them to make informed decisions whenever choices are open to them. It helps them to understand enough about the world of work to know what skills they need to succeed.

Therefore, Longcroft School and Sixth Form College has a commitment to provide high quality careers guidance for all pupils and students in Years 7 – 13 that prepares and inspires our young people. 

In light of this, we recently launched our Careers Development Programme which coordinates the ways in which we act to support our pupils' and students' understanding of the world of work, and of the options and pathways open to them.  This Careers Development Programme is detailed in the Careers Education Policy below.

Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium Statement

The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives state-funded schools, including special schools and alternative provision settings, additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of Key Stage 2 (KS2). From September 2020 this funding has been withdrawn. Please see attached document for further details.  

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional school funding for children eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. It is up to the school to decide how it spends this money to raise achievement and improve outcomes for these students and pupils.

Approach and Strategic Summary

In supporting those students and pupils who are eligible for the Pupil Premium, we recognise that not all those who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and not all socially disadvantaged pupils will be in receipt of free school meals. Support and intervention will be allocated to those students or student cohorts identified as a priority dependent on need, whether this in terms of supporting their attainment and progress and/or their well-being. Not all students and pupils receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at any one time therefore.

The Pupil Premium Grant will be used to support the school's ´personalised learning´ ethos and to remove barriers to learning, and to promote progress. This will include:

  • the provision of student and pupil profiles for all staff so that teaching and learning can be carefully matched to the needs of students and pupils
  • the provision of teaching and learning resources matched to the needs of students and pupils
  • whole staff training and development focused on meeting the needs of all students and pupils
  • intervention in English and Maths, and support for other subject specific intervention
  • additional Education Welfare Officer hours to improve attendance for targeted students and pupils
  • support with transport to and from school to improve attendance for targeted students and pupils
  • specific pastoral and inclusion staff training in supporting the emotional well-being of students and pupils
  • purchasing of additional Careers guidance and interviews for targeted students and pupils
  • provision of additional extra-curricular enrichment activities for targeted students and pupils
  • the allocation of a dedicated pastoral staff member to respond to the needs of students and pupils who have families serving in the Armed Forces
