Mufti Day - Red Nose Day, Friday 13th February
On Friday the 13th March Edenham will be supporting Comic Relief by holding a Mufti Day in aid of Red Nose Day. Students are requested to wear at least one item of red clothing and will also be able to wear red noses.
Pupils learn valuable life skills and it helps to build school cohesion. Pupils gain understanding and empathy for others in the world. Our school can really make a difference to people’s lives. We will also be using Red Nose Day as a teaching opportunity so that our students can learn about the issues children across the world face, and how the money we raise can help them.
Students are asked to make a donation if they would like to wear their own clothes, suggested minimum donation £1.00. Parents are also welcome to make a donation. (please seal donations in an envelope and hand in to reception or their child’s form tutor).
We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping us raise lots of money for Red Nose Day!

Dear Parents/Carers, The school calendar for 2014/15 is produced by Croydon Council. We have decided to make a few changes to this, our main concern is the last day of term - Monday 20th July. We feel that many parents would prefer the Summer term to end on a Friday.
Changes to the school calendar
· Monday 20th July will now become Inset day 5 (teacher training day)
· The last day of school for students will now be Friday 17th July
· Monday 13th April will now be a normal school day for students and staff (previously was inset day 5) Thank you, Mr N Welch,Assistant Principal

Show My Homework
We are pleased to announce that we are now running Show My Homework at Edenham. This system allows all teachers to upload homework onto the online platform so that students and parents can access it through the online calendar. There is a link to this on the tabs to the left. Students and parents can also login to look at specific homework set for that child. Parents of more than one student at Edenham can combine accounts together for ease of use.
The system allows us to send home all letters, bulletins and important information to registered users. Students can see a countdown to all the homework set for their classes and parents can see whether or not it was submitted and potentially what grade was achieved for the work.
Show My Homework is now fully functioning at Edenham, please ensure you are logging in to check homework that has been set.
Students have now all received their login details for themselves and for their parent/carers. If you did not receive your information or are having trouble logging in please contact your son/daughters current Head of Progress Team who will be happy to assist you.
