Dear Parent/Carer,

We are delighted to have the opportunity for your child to take part in an exciting project to help them to understand more about themselves and the world around them. This project is run by our local Careers Hub, of which we are part of, and funded and evaluated by The Careers & Enterprise Company. You can find out more about the project by speaking to Charlotte Poynton at charlotte.poynton@theedgeacademy.co.uk.

As a part of this project, we are investigating how engaging in career-related activities might make a difference to children’s engagement in education. On Thursday 20th January 2022 we will be visiting The Pump in Kitts Green to take part in workshops on song writing, recording and 3D printing. We will travel by minibus to the venue and will return to school in time for dismissal. Lunch will be provided. 

The organisers of the project (Birmingham Careers Hub) have requested your permission for your child’s photo to be taken for promotional purposes. Images help to share the impact of their work and to make sure it can carry on making a positive difference to young people, their families, schools & communities. If you DO NOT want your child’s photo to be taken for these purposes please inform the school. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on 0121 533 5858 or charlotte.poynton@theedgeacademy.co.uk

Yours sincerely,

Charlotte Poynton

Assistant Principal
