We consider that successful transition depends on a range of things such as creating the right environment where students feel safe and secure, to supporting students in developing positive relationships quickly within their tutor groups and with their teachers, and for us as a school, to successfully work in partnership with parents and carers. It is often parents and carers that worry the most and this can be because, for many of you, your time at secondary school was a long time ago and you are not sure what to expect and you will want to offer your child reassurance and support but don’t necessarily have the information to do so!  There are lots of people here to support students through this transition period and we know that they are bound to be a little bit nervous or anxious – this is perfectly normal!

For students, we offer opportunities for them to get to know Bradley Stoke Community School as soon as we can and this starts during terms 5 and 6 when we will be coming out to visit our new students in their primary schools.  These sessions will be an opportunity for students to ask lots of questions and to find out information about some of the things that they are interested in.  

For parents, the Parents Information Evening takes place this year on Monday 19 June 2017 between 6 & 7.30pm.  It will be an opportunity for you to find out more about the structure of the school and how parents and carers can support transition. 

Uniform is now ordered through our suppliers, Initially Yours, and you can visit their local shop in Hambrook or order online.  Initially Yours.  Please see below in Some Useful Documents our BSCS Uniform policy.

      

Transition Days take place this year on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 June 2016 from 9am (please don't arrive until after 8.45am) until 2.15pm. This is an opportunity for students to meet with their tutor, to meet other students who are going to be part of the tutor group, to start to learn their way around school and to experience a day at secondary school! Students will be a given a “student survival” guide which was created by other students as a support for any new students joining us from primary school. This contains lots of facts and tips about where to go and who to speak to in a range of situations.  Students don't need to wear school uniform and can enjoy a free school lunch or alternatively bring a packed lunch if they prefer.
