The school makes provision for all students to have experiences to apply essential skills. These might include project-based learning, off-timetable days, employer encounters, workplace visits and enterprise challenges. Many students use opportunities to apply and develop their essential skills outside school, for example during 'home learning projects'. In recent months our KS2 children have had the opportunity to witness the success of essential skills being used in the world of work. This was through a careers day called 'Local Heroes' with the intention for children to see individuals who were similar to themselves and have excelled in a chosen career regardless of race or gender. The guests included people from Amazon, Sky TV, Gunnersbury park museum and Border Force. This day was a great success and gave the children high aspirations and a fearlessness to dream big!
