Aspirations

At St Mary's and St Peter's we want all our children to reach for the stars and to know that the world is their oyster. We try to provide them with information and experiences to get them thinking about what they may want to do in the future.

 

Careers Week

In Careers week we met a pilot, some firefighters, a person who works for ITV an actor from the theatre, Bradford Bulls, the director of Yorkshire Water, people who work for different charities and an ex footballer who champions mental health and wellbeing.

We also all became engineers and built our own box cars. We then tested them down a ramp to see how far they would travel.

Year 6 Workforce

 

We have a very successful Year 6 workforce. The children have had to apply for a role in school and if successful in their application went through an interview. The children work hard in their roles through the week getting their time sheets signed at the end of every session they complete. Once the timesheet is signed they can collect the payment tokens at the end of the week. The children choose what to do with their tokens, they can spend them straight away to pay for a chosen item from the 'shop' or they can save them up to get something of greater value.
