My Future, My Southend
We are pleased to be part of an exciting initiative called My Future My Southend, this is soon to be expanded across other schools in Essex. This is a project that aims to raise aspirations, challenge stereotypes and broaden horizons.
This is achieved with half-termly Zoom meets with a range of career professionals who talk to all classes from years 1-6. The children engage in a fun warm-up activity (involving golden envelopes!), listen to professionals talk about their careers and ask questions of their own to find out more about their profession.
We are also aiming to expand the project further by offering career focussed school trips and workshops. Please be aware that these opportunities are targeted depending on the availability of the employer and appropriate age range. We believe it is essential for our children to be exposed to opportunities to think about the broad range of careers that are available to children when they come of age.
