Careers Day at Beaumont Community Primary School in Suffolk

Beaumont Community Primary School is a small school in a rural setting in Hadleigh, Suffolk. Mayleen Atima, headteacher at the school, planned a Careers Day for her children on Wednesday the 12th of February, with a whole school ‘What’s My Line?’ Assembly followed by Speed Networking for the year 6 children. Speed Netowkring sessions involve volunteers rotating around classrooms, speaking to groups of children about their jobs and what they do.

Mayleen says “we had a brilliant session. The pupils were really inspired by the volunteers and the ‘What’s My Line?’ Activity was amazing!” She is very much looking forward to planning another Careers Day for the children next year.
