Pledges

The parents/carers of Year 7 students were invited to a meeting today where they were given information regarding the new initiative being introduced by Manor Croft Academy.  Please read below for more information.

The Delta Manor Croft Academy’s Pledges initiative ensures that you understand the value of extra-curricular involvement within and outside of the Academy.

Through meeting the Pledges, which range from attending enrichment activities to organising fundraising events, you will gain confidence and valuable life experiences that will help to prepare you for life in your community and beyond the Academy.

Gaining a minimum of a Bronze Pledge award, along with higher than E1 for effort in ALL lessons, will allow you to GRADUATE at the end of Key Stage 3, to advance onto Year 9 and your GCSE Options.  Failure to do so may involve you staying back in Year 8 until you have achieved your goals.

Completing pledges will lead to you being awarded pledge badges.

Bronze badge - Completion of 3 pledges.

Silver badge - Completion of 6 pledges. 

Gold badge - Completion of 8 pledges.

Platinum badge - Completion of 10 pledges.

You must make sure that you get your Form Tutor to sign your pledge booklet after providing evidence of you completing the pledge.

Evidence can be in the form of photos, certificates or staff witnesses from the event.
