Provider Access Statement


This statement sets out the Academy's arrangements for managing the access of providers to students at the academy for the purpose of giving them information about the provider's education or training offer. This complies with the Academy's legal obligations under Section 42B of the Education Act 1997. Bolton St Catherine's Academy is developing very fast and we would like external agencies on board supporting us through this journey to achieve the best for our students.
