Useful Information for Parents/Carers
We recognise the important role that parents/carers have in their child’s career development. As a parent/carer you are entitled to expect that Highworth will enable you to take an active part in helping your child make decisions at key points, and throughout their time at the school, by offering the following
- Inviting you to attend review evening appointments with our Careers Lead, Miss Hodges, to discuss anything related to CEIAG
- Inviting you to give feedback in terms of resources and activites relating to CEIAG; this will be done via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Making you aware of CEIAG events and activities that the school is providing, as well as being notified of opportunities provided by external organisations.
Communication will be maintained through direct letters and via the school's Careers News section on the school website.
