Redden Court School, in Harold Wood, has been recognised for its outstanding careers work this week.
The school has been awarded the national Quality in Careers Standard by Prospects.
The national Quality in Careers Standard is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their life after school.
Havering’s Mayor Councillor Dilip Patel was present on Monday the 28th of January to present awards.
More than 1,100 schools and colleges are already voluntarily working towards or have achieved the national standard for careers.
There is a statutory duty to ‘secure independent careers guidance’ for all students from year 8 onwards and the Government also recommends that all schools should be required to work towards the national Quality in Careers Standard.
Kane Ward, Assistant Headteacher at Redden Court School, who led on the award, said: “We are thrilled to have achieved the national Quality in Careers Standard awarded by Prospects.
“At Redden Court School we recognise the important role school plays in helping students develop their knowledge, skills and experience so they can go out into the world and achieve personal success.”
“We are one of only a few comprehensive schools in the country who have accredited Thinking School status.
“Our approach to Teaching and Learning very much focuses on the development of thinking skills, growth mindsets and increasingly flexible learners.
“As a learning community, we are committed to the success of all of our learners and pride ourselves on being an inclusive school.”
