Gunnersbury Catholic School

Information for Parents and Carers

"Gunnersbury Catholic School is a thriving, vibrant and caring learning community within which pupils are stretched intellectually and foster a love of learning, whilst feeling valued, happy and safe" (OFSTED)

Information for Parents and carers

The support of parents and carers is critical to the guidance students receive in terms of their post 14, 16 and 18 transitions.

Resources, websites and opportunities are regularly shared with students via their Google Classrooms and parents will receive emails related to CEAIG events and opportunities.

START is an incredibly useful website that all students have access to. It greatly assists students in understanding the choices they have available to them at key points in their educational journey.

START enables students to create a profile and record their achievements and skills via an on-line Locker.  Students can continue to use to update their skills as they move into each key stage and navigate the thousands of jobs, courses and opportunities available. This package provides the students and parents with local labour market information.

We encourage parents to explore these resources with their children.

Parents can access the website as a guest using the following link:

Below is the latest Labour Market Bulletin from EDT which helps inform you of the national and local picture.

At Gunnersbury we see great value in our  students engaging with the careers curriculum in practical ways; we believe students gain a lot from external speakers who can offer different viewpoints, insight and experiences. We are also aware of the vast resource that is our parent body and are keen to bring people and organisations into the school to inspire our young learners and bring areas of work and study to life.

If you are able to support the school by providing:

  • Careers talks- sharing your experiences in a particular industry or career
  • Work experience placements
  • Careers workshop- on various careers related topics
