School placements are organised by St Polycarp’s CTSA drawing on the talented and nurturing staff within the schools in our alliance. We are proud of our child centered approach to learning and our supportive ethos and from the moment you join this course you become part of our team.
You will be placed in a minimum of two schools listed below with the flexibility to ensure your placements reflect your needs and interests e.g. SEND. As you are employed by your host school it is essential they understand the requirement to undertake a placement outside of their employment to ensure diversity of placement. Where possible we endeavor to coordinate placements to ensure they have another student for this period but this can not be guaranteed.
Your supporting mentors will be trained to guide you through this learning journey and work alongside you to enhance your educational understanding and classroom practice.
