Thurrock Careers is now offering information, advice and guidance sessions to all primary schools across Thurrock. The sessions are aimed at raising aspirations and helping children understand both the world of work and the great opportunities that Thurrock can offer.
The programme was originally run as a pilot, which demonstrated excellent outcomes. Since then, the response has been overwhelming with more schools choosing to buy this service for their students in Years 5 and 6.

Crisis Communication for Schools
Thurrock Council’s communications team offers round-the-clock crisis communication support to school management teams and their governing bodies.
Schools are always vulnerable to events which, without careful handling, can seriously damage their reputation. These situations can include:
• criminal allegations against staff
• serious or fatal injuries to pupils at, or away from, schools
• whole or part closure due to health and safety concerns
• criminal damage to the premises
• criminal allegations against a pupil
• missing pupils
That’s why we’ve developed a special crisis communications support package for local schools.
