Dear Parent/Carer,


Key dates for your diary:

Wednesday 5th July 5 – 7pm – Steak pie and chips masterclass (contact nick.self@theedgeacademy.co.uk to book your place)

Tuesday 11th July 4 – 6pm – Parents evening for years 7-10

Friday 14th July – Students dismissed at 1pm for staff training

Friday 21st July – Break up 1pm (non-uniform day)


As ever, I am extremely proud of the students and staff at The Edge Academy. Our ethos ensures each student is treated as an individual and that no matter what mistakes have been made in the past, we can rectify, improve, and move forward. As part of this recognition that each individual can make a positive contribution to the life of the academy we have introduced two new positive behaviour initiatives.

    1. PRAISE cards. Students obtain signatures from staff throughout the day for positive behaviours ranging from helping others to being punctual. The winner is the person with the most signatures and receives a certificate. All cards handed in are placed in a prize draw that will take place Friday lunchtimes.Well done to Rebecca Williams who was the first winner of the PRAISE card system.
    2. ‘Friday 5’. Period 5 Friday until the end of term will involve a celebration for all students who have met the behaviour criteria for the week. This week students who have received no red cards or truancy logs will be invited to the party!Please encourage your son/daughter to aim high as ALL can make the most of these reward systems.


      Yours faithfully,

      Karen Slater
