Abbeywood Community School

PiXL Edge

At Abbeywood we constantly strive to give our students as many opportunities as possible to try new things and to give them the best chance for future success. With this in mind, we are excited to launch a brand new programme called PiXL Edge with our year 7 cohort.

The aim of this programme is to develop and accredit students with those personal attributes essential for employability and life.

 The Edge gives students an opportunity to develop 5 key attributes:

– Leadership

– Organization

– Resilience

– Initiative

– Communication

 It also provides students with the opportunity to make themselves more attractive to further education and future employers and helps celebrate achievements made both in and out of school.

Once complete students will receive a nationally recognised certificate and badge, additional prizes and rewards will be made throughout the year.

How does it work?

To achieve PiXL Apprentice Level students will have 2 years to attain 10 credits over the 5 key attributes, activities can be completed both in and out of school.

Examples of Activities

  • Take responsibility for teaching a piece of work to others in the class
  • Lead a coaching session in PE
  • Attend an enrichment club every week for a term
  • Organise a small scale fundraising activity e.g Charity Day
  • Compose a musical piece for a single instrument or voice which is performed

Once the PiXL Apprentice Level is complete they can then work towards their PiXL Graduate and PiXL Master Level.
