Baker Clause Policy Statement

Quarrydale Academy uses the Gatsby Benchmarks and the CDi Framework as a guide to plan our Careers and PSHE programmes. As part of our commitment to informing our students of the full range of learning and training pathways on offer to them, we are happy to consider requests from training, apprenticeship and vocational education providers to speak to students.

Quarrydale Academy also proactively seeks to build relationships with partners as we plan our Careers activities throughout the school year to ensure that providers have multiple opportunities to speak to students and their parents across years 7-11, to offer information on vocational, technical and apprenticeship qualifications and pathways. Quarrydale Academy ensures that Academy staff involved in personnel guidance and pastoral support are up to date on their knowledge of these post 16 and post 18 pathways, through a programme of Continuing Professional Development.

Opportunities for providers to speak with students may include school assemblies, employer and provider engagement events or opportunities to speak with students and parents on a one-to-one basis supporting GCSE and post 16 option choices. Quarrydale Academy’s Careers and PSHE programmes are monitored for quality and impact.

In the first instance, requests by providers should be sent to the Academy’s Strategic Lead Steven Cooper at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Careers Leader Kim Dellar at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with a minimum of 6 weeks lead time.
