  • TRANSITION - Year 6 Journey to The Bridge

    Published 15/06/20

    Our new dedicated Year 6 to Year 7 website page will be our way of sharing as much information as possible with you and your child.

    This webpage gives us the opportunity for you and your child to familiarise yourself with The Bridge, and also get to know the Bridge Team who will be working closely with your child. 

    We hope that this will also give you some clarity about what to expect when your child starts secondary school, as well as some background information about each Year 7 tutor. This webpage and transition pack (below) will also inform you of the range of outstanding learning and enrichment opportunities and highlights the outstanding ethos and expectations in The Bridge. 

    We hope you will find this informative. Please do not hesitate to contact us at school with any queries.

    Emails can be sent to transition@pks.coventry.sch.uk. We recognise that the transition from primary to secondary is such an important time in your child’s education. 

    We look forward to meeting you and your child in September.

    Please click for  Latest Letter from the Headteacher 19th June 2020

    Please click here for latest Risk Assessment for Covid-19 

    Please click for ​​​​​​ Covid-19 Safeguarding Policy  


    Coronavirus (Covid-19): Implementing social distancing in education and childcare settings:

    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-social-distancing-in-education-and-childcare-settings/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-social-distancing-in-education-and-childcare-settings

    Fraud targeting parents of children in FSM:

    The DfE has warned that fraudsters are targeting parents of children eligible for free school meals. Families have received an email requesting their bank details, claiming this will enable their children to continue receiving meals through school closures amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    DfE are urging parents to delete the scam email immediately.

    Children with Asthma:

    Asthma UK published the following shielding advice yesterday for children with asthma:

    "If you are, or your child is, taking:

    · Any biologic therapy, also called a mAb (Xolair/omalizumab, Nucala/mepolizumab, Cinqaero/reslizumab, Fasenra/benralizumab)

    · Steroid tablets or liquid every day

    · Antibiotic tablets or liquid for asthma every week (e.g. azithromycin)

    · Tiotropium

    · A combination inhaler that also contains a long-acting bronchodilator (e.g. Seretide, Fostair, Symbicort) at a high daily steroid dose (see the list …..in the article)

    · An inhaler with a high daily steroid dose (see the list….in the article) AND you are taking Montelukast

    Or, if:

    · You have been admitted to hospital for your asthma in the last 12 months

    · You have ever been admitted to an intensive care unit for your asthma

    Then you should follow the shielding advice which is set out in very helpful detail, including how to register for extra services from the government.”


    Over the next few weeks children may be spending an increasing amount of time online and it is therefore important that they know how to keep themselves safe online.

    To support this https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/ will be sharing a series of age appropriate worksheets for parents to complete with children at home - 

    https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Support-tools/home-activity-worksheets/


    Please see attachment below of email sent out to parents/carers Friday 20th March 2020 regarding children who are eligible to attend school from Monday 23rd March 2020.

    https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TKQXSX7

    Please see attachment below regarding Free School Meal provision from Monday 23rd March 2020.


    In light of government guidance, the school is reducing face to face contact with staff and is encouraging parents and visitors not to come into school. If you need to contact a member of staff, please telephone the school in the first instance or email our reception team at reception@pks.coventry.sch.uk

    Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
