Dear Parent/ Carer,


As you will be aware, we have high expectations of behaviour at The Edge Academy. We would therefore like to take this opportunity to thank the vast majority of students who are continuing to make good progress in their lessons and conduct themselves appropriately in school.

In addition, we would like to inform you of a new reward programme we will be running from now on whereby all students who have met our standards will receive a reward in their final lesson each Friday. Students have been informed of the new programme in school today and understand that as well as aiming to accumulate “positive points” from staff, they must avoid the following sanctions in order to qualify for the reward:

  • Detentions for poor behaviour.
  • Detentions for truancy.
  • Removal from lessons for poor behaviour.
  • Any other incidents which are reported to the Senior Leadership Team.

We have also asked students today to give the Senior Leadership Team feedback on what they would like to receive in terms of rewards each week. They are welcome to come to myself, Ms Slater or Ms Bailey with any ideas they have for the future and we will do our best to accommodate them!

Thank you all for your continued support of our students- it is much appreciated. If there is anything further than we can be doing at present to help and support your child, please contact me.

Yours sincerely,



Andrew Wakefield

Vice Principal
