Charters School - Information for parents

As a School that never stands still and is always looking to improve; we want our pupils to follow our footsteps and strive to be the best they can be. The Edge programme will allow them to develop and be accredited for five key attributes essential for employability and life.

This begins in Year 7 when your child will be introduced to The Edge programme and will start to log their activities and provide evaluations for each one. We hope this will encourage them to get involved in as many extra-curricular opportunities as possible both in and out of school – some of which they may have never even thought of before now!

There are numerous activities in which your child can be accredited for; from something as simple as helping to lead a warm up in PE lessons to organising a stall for the school summer fair.

As parents we invite you to be part of their unique journey; encourage your child to talk to you regularly about their progress and achievements with the Edge. As a School we will be rewarding pupils regularly for logging the most activities. We will also reward those pupils who show perseverance and true determination to complete activities each term.

We want to ensure that your child leaves Charters School not only with the best qualifications possible but with a myriad of personal attributes allowing them to stand out from the crowd and achieve their goals. Competition for University places and employment today is ever increasing and together we can help your child embrace this programme that will undoubtedly give them the Edge.

If you are unsure about the Edge; how the programme runs or have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
