    This is to update you on the latest information regarding free school meals and the introduction of the Government’s National voucher scheme with effect from Monday 18th January for a 4 week period, which will take us up to February half term.

    The school is currently waiting for access to the system to place an order for the vouchers.

    The School intends that the vouchers will be issued in two separate voucher instalments covering a two week period, as follows:

     1.    A £30 eCode will be provided towards the end of this week; this will cover the two week period Monday 18th January to Friday 29th January;

     2.    A second £30 eCode will be provided during the week commencing 1st February; this will cover the two week period Monday 1st February to Friday 12th February.

    We appreciate this will mean a delay in vouchers being issued this week.   Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require any support by emailing info@pks.coventry.sch.uk.

    Kind regards,                                                                                                                                                                    President Kennedy School

  • Covid-19 Testing Arrangements for Secondary School Students.

    Published 23/02/21

    Covid-19 Testing Arrangements for Secondary School Students.


    Dear Parents and Carers,

    I am writing to you following the Government’s announcement yesterday about the reopening of schools, and the resulting changes to the Covid-19 testing arrangements for secondary school students.

    We are working to keep school as safe as possible and, as part of this, secondary schools have been asked to offer students testing on-site from 8th March; this will consist of an initial 3 tests, 3 to 5 days apart.  Students will be supervised whilst swabbing to make sure they are doing it correctly, the lateral flow tests are quick and easy using a swab of the nose and throat. These tests are intended to help staff and students to remain in school safely. Testing is voluntary, however, we would encourage everyone to participate in the asymptomatic testing programme to help break the transmission links.

    Results (which take around half an hour from testing) will be shared directly with the staff and students participating, as they are sent to the email and/or mobile number you provide. Where participants are under 16, parents or legal guardians will also be informed. Testing is free of charge.

    Please find below some frequently asked questions, and attached is an instructional leaflet with some more information about the Lateral Flow Test.

    If you are happy for your child to be tested, please complete the online consent form via this link:  Click Here by 3pm on Friday 26th February 2021.

    Please note that following these initial 3 tests that are offered in school, both staff and students will be supplied with Lateral Flow Tests to self-swab and test themselves twice a week at home. More details will follow about this is due course.

    If you have any queries or would like further assistance, please either contact the school office or email: info@pks.coventry.sch.uk .

    Kind regards

    Mr N Clayton,                                                                                                                                                Headteacher

  • Langar Aid Christmas Present Donation

    Published 16/12/20

    Langar Aid have been collaborating with Year 8 and 9 at President Kennedy School and the Family Hub in Coventry. The family hub model is an approach to the delivery of early help services centralised around a building, where several different services providing information and support to families, children and young people are based. They will provide early help and support for families, children and young people aged 0 – 19 years up to age 24 where a young person has a disability.

    The two main centres Langar Aid will distribute the toys and gifts to are 'The Pathways Families Hub' in Radford and 'The Mosaic Families Hub' in Tile Hill.

    Students at President Kennedy School had to apply to become Charity Ambassadors. Qualities required to do this included being involved in fundraising activities in Year 7 and 8.

    They drove a strong campaign throughout the school by making posters to promote this important cause as well as speaking about it during tutor period. 

    Once they received the huge number of kind donations which comprised of unused gifts from across the whole school, including staff and families in the local community, they set upon the task of wrapping them all!

       

        

     After this, Year 9 students Arichana Ramanan, Stefanie Gazova, Tanishaka Siva, Millie O’Docherty and Year 8 students, Leona Farman, Macy Bradley, Ruby Butcher and Eliza Lesina all received an award to recognise the work they did for the Queens Award for Voluntary Service.

      

    Langar Aid received the Queens award by Supporting the Vulnerable and Promoting equality by following the Sikh principle of sharing Food.

  • President Kennedy School is Christmas Tree Ready!

    Published 15/12/20

    Were they aware?

    'Twas the days before Christmas, when all through the school,
    Students were behaving,  not one broken rule!
    The tree in reception was looking quite bare,
    A phone call to the Bridge, "Were we aware?"

    When what to my wondering eyes did appear,
    Mrs Wilson's English group who've worked hard this year,
    So down to the main door (walking sensibly) they flew,
    With masks, antibac and a box of decs too.

    They spoke not a word, but went straight to work,
    Such an honour to do so, not a task they would shirk, 
    Covered in tinsel and baubles, a much better sight,
    (though Elf and Safety would not let them reach the full height).

    Job done they stopped and took in the view,
    And posed for some photos, like this one shared with you, 
    And I heard them exclaim, as they went back to class,
    Happy Christmas to all, and a new year better than last!
