Year 9’s: Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

5 September 2019

Dear Parent,

Re: The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme 

We would like to offer your child the chance to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. The Bronze Award consists of 4 sections, skill, volunteering, physical and expedition. Two of the sections will be carried out for 3 months and the third for 6 months. The expedition section will involve weekend walks and assessments and possibly Enrichment Week. The award requires a great deal of commitment, organisation and hard work from the participants but does allow them to gain accreditation for activities they undertake outside of school which is recognised all over the world.

All students will need an e-log book, which will be filled in over the six months with the expedition taking place hopefully in enrichment week 2020. The total cost for the award  is currently placed at between £100-£200, depending on numbers, which can be paid in installments over the year. If you are in receipt of free school meals, you may be eligible for support.

If your child is interested in taking part, please could you complete the attached form and return it to me by the 1st week back in September? At this stage, returning the form does not guarantee a place on the award, it will allow me to get an idea of interest.

If you have any queries regarding the award please view the website www.dofe.org or contact Miss Ratcliffe through Schoolcomms.

Yours Sincerely,

Victoria Ratcliffe

D of E Manager
