The Lampard Community School

Middle School

In Middle School you will develop your understanding of careers through PSHE, project weeks and your wider curriculum areas. In Middle School we are beginning to prepare you for your Year 9 reviews where ‘Preparation for Adulthood’ outcomes will be discussed/ agreed. You will have opportunities for workplace visits which we hope will help to raise/ inform interests and aspirations and engagement in work. We will help you to understand the different employment pathways available to you in the future; this will include personal careers guidance from Year 9.

By the end of Middle School, you will have:

  • Explored careers and the world of work through your PSHE curriculum.
  • Attended a 1:1 interview with the school’s Careers’ Leader before you pick your options (Year 9)
  • Attended an options event
  • Meet with your link CSW Careers Development Consultant
  • Learnt about stereotypes in the work place. 
  • Had a Transition Review (Year 9) to update your EHCP. Your careers aspirations will be recorded at the meeting
  • Taken part in at least two enterprise projects.
  • Had encounters with employers and employees (at least 3).
  • Experienced at least one work place visit a year.

By the end of Middle School, you will be able to:

  • Recognise your personal qualities and skills
  • Recognise the different skills you are developing in each curriculum area
  • Have an idea of what jobs/ careers you are interested.
  • Understand which option choices will help you to reach your goals.
  • Think about what you might like to do when you leave Lampard Community School.
  • Make links between the subjects you learn and careers in these areas.
