Education at Winchmore School offers each student a range of opportunities and these are frequently changing to match opportunities and developments in the outside world. Students will need to make informed decisions at various times (such as choosing options and pathways between Key Stage 3 and 4), understand the relevance of their learning and plan for their future.
We aim to support and equip students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make appropriate choices in their learning and plan for their future by the appointment of an Economic Wellbeing Coordinator, Mrs Winter. Her role is to work with students, parents and carers, and staff, including our Connexions Adviser Mrs Feisal, to ensure that all our students form a realistic and positive view of their capabilities and are prepared to meet the challenges presented to them and plan appropriately for their future.
The main areas of Economic Wellbeing will include:
- Work Related Learning, (including Work Experience and Vocational Courses)
- Financial Capability
This supports the fifth outcome of Every Child Matters enabling our students to enjoy and achieve, and to make a positive contribution.
The Economic Wellbeing office is situated near the Learning Resource Centre and the opening times are Tuesday to Thursday from 8.30am until 4.30pm.
Appointments can be made with either the Economic Wellbeing Coordinator or the Connexions Careers Adviser to discuss any of the above and this facility is available to parents, carers and students.
