We are so proud to announce that Eaton Park Academy has been awarded the ‘Careers Quality Mark’, with a grading of outstanding. As a school, we were assessed against a set of 8 benchmarks, each of which had up to 4 criteria that we had to prove that we had met. All of the experiences we provided for the children, such as the ‘Career Day’ at the Bet 365 stadium and the experiences during ‘Aspirations Week’, as well as parent, staff and child feedback all helped us to meet each of the criteria. To be awarded outstanding, it was also important for us to show how we would continue the fabulous work we do linked to careers and transition in the future, so all children at Eaton Park have the same ‘outstanding’ knowledge and experience linked to careers ready for the next stage in their journey. If nothing else, seeing children enjoying the experiences, gaining more of an understanding of their options in the future and being able to speak openly about their own aspirations has made all of the hard work worthwhile!
