CEIAG – Parents and Carers

At Wargrave House School we have a careers programme in place that ensures that every child will be well equipped for the future and have the information and opportunities they need to make realistic and informed decisions about further education, training and employment.


All parents and carers can expect to:

  • be able to make an appointment with a member of staff or specialist adviser to discuss their children’s progress and future prospects
  • have access to teachers, subject leaders, learning partners and specialist advisers at parents’ events
  • be invited to look at schemes of work, careers activities, information and resources, using and contributing to them if they wish
  • receive invitations to take part in careers and information events such as ‘Provider days’, ‘Parent and Carer Options Coffee Mornings’
  • have the opportunity to comment on the usefulness of the careers programme to their children and how it could be improved

Supporting Transition

As part of your son/daughters Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan, the Year 9 annual review and every review after that, will include a focus on preparing for adulthood. This means there should be targets in the EHC plan that will help your child to achieve steps towards preparing for post 16 options. The EHCP will be updated as your child progresses.

When your son/daughter leaves Wargrave House School, they are likely to have some or all of the following options available to them depending on their ability, independence and support needs:

Further education – At a college or training provider to follow a study programme, including Independent Specialist Colleges (ISC). For post 16 options from your local offer please select correct Local Authority:
