      Provider Access Statement Introduction 

      This policy statement sets out the school’s arrangements for managing the access of providers to pupils at the school for the purposes of giving them information about the provider’s education or training offer. This complies with the school’s legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997.
       
      Management of provider access requests 

      Opportunities for access 

      Our provision (see Appendix 4 CEIAG map) includes various opportunities for students to access a range of events. These are integrated into the schools careers programme and curriculum and are, therefore, delivered internally with contribution from external providers where appropriate. 

      Procedure 

      Local providers are invited to key relevant events e.g. Careers Fairs. External providers interested in coming into school should contact Mr J.Banks, Assistant Head (Curriculum & Personal Development) via email: j.banks@cromptonhouse.org to discuss the nature of the visit and identify the most suitable opportunity. 
      The school policy on safeguarding sets out the school’s approach to allowing providers into school as visitors to talk to our students. 

      Resources 

      Once visits have been agreed, the school will provide appropriate rooming to facilitate the visit, along with any equipment requested by the provider, where it is available. Providers are welcome to leave a copy of their prospectus or other relevant course literature for display in our school Learning Zone – careers resources section. The Learning Zone is available to all students at lunch and break times.
