Pixl Edge


The Bay CE School are pleased to confirm that we have launched Pixl EDGE. This is a national innovative scheme that is intended, over time, to develop a number of key life skills and attributes which will assist students in succeeding once they leave school. 

The scheme has been developed in conjunction with a number of companies and employers who have expressed the core skills students need to be able to succeed in a workplace, in addition to their academic qualifications. These skills have been broken down into five core areas: Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initiative and Communication, or LORIC for short.

Students have to complete a total of ten activities, two in each category.  There are examples of what these activities may involve below, or you can go to the Pixl website for more information.

Once a student has successfully completed all ten tasks, they will have ‘The EDGE’ which will be represented in the form of a qualification recognised by schools and colleges and, increasingly, employers as well. We host a large celebration event in July, with special guests from the world of business, and a presentation of awards to our successful candidates.

More details will follow in subsequent weeks, and a letter will follow shortly to all parents. Pixl EDGE activities will take place during their tutor sessions twice a week.  One session will be based around discussion and activities to give ideas on what each core area represents, while the other will be based in an IT room to give students the opportunity to choose and record their activities.
