It is never too early for children to think about their futures and Healing Primary Academy has proved it by becoming the first in North East Lincolnshire to win a top careers award.
Healing Primary Academy has been awarded the Careers Quality Standard in a pilot scheme launched by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, and also received the Silver Skills Builder Award from the Skills Builder Partnership.
Healing Primary Academy are committed to the development of children’s understanding of the wider world and raising their aspirations. Harbour Learning Trust’s strapline, “Success and happiness for every child” reflects our recognition that careers-related learning is an important opportunity for our pupils to be exposed to a wide range of experiences, knowledge and skills from the world of work. Healing Primary Academy recognise that they have a crucial role in providing their pupils with the information needed to enable them to make informed decisions, acquire positive attitudes and to develop their own aspirations for the future.
The academy was supported by The Careers and Enterprise Company at the Humber LEP to reach the standard and worked in partnership with its Skills Builder Partnership, which provided projects to deliver. Through their Careers-Related curriculum, a project is completed each term with a whole school Skills Day at the start of every academic year. The academy has also participated in events such as the Women in Manufacturing and Engineering event at Grimsby Town Hall, taking Year 6 girls to experience hands-on activities and inspirational talks. The academy’s work on careers was commended by the awarding panel and it is being used as a case study for others to follow.
Healing Primary Academy would like to thank Brendan Conlan, Managing Director of On Line Design Ltd and Catch, Stallingborough, for their ongoing support.
