Year 6 Transition to Bristol Free School for September 2021 intake

Welcome to the family of Bristol Free School

Welcome to Bristol Free School, I look forward to getting to know you and your children well over the coming months and years. Bristol Free School is a fantastic school where children flourish; our excellent pastoral care will ensure that your child is well-supported as they make this important transition from primary to secondary school.

At a time when normal school life is fractured beyond all recognition, it is vital that we work together to maintain some semblance of normality for your family this includes the anticipation and excitement that comes with starting a new school. We realise that this is an unsettling time for all students, but especially our Year 6 students who will have been working towards this significant milestone for some time.

At this stage, it is difficult to provide an exact science of what a revised transition programme will look like for your child but I want to assure you that Year 6 children are very much at the forefront of our minds and we are looking forward to meeting and welcoming them personally when the time comes.

We have pulled together information and resources to support you and your child over the coming weeks as they prepare for their first day at BFS. You will shortly meet your child’s Year Leader, Pastoral Manager and Mrs Jenkins, the senior leader responsible for Key Stage 3. These staff will be an important point of contact for your family over the coming weeks, offering more personalised support as we move towards September.

I look forward to working with you to support and inspire your child, to ensure they have the necessary skills and educational experience to fulfil their potential and flourish in the safe, happy and enriching environment of Bristol Free School.

Mrs Susan King
