PUPILS GIVE THEIR VIEWS; From one Cash to another...
Narrow Lane School became Pridmore School which was set up in Pridmore Road in a temporary breeze-block building. In the early 1970s, numbers were rising and juniors moved to the current site which was called Christopher Cash Junior School.
Soon after that Holbrook Primary School moved further out of the city and the catchment area for Christopher Cash and Pridmore Infants expanded. Education bosses decided to bring infants and juniors together in a single school on the Christopher Cash site.
That was when teachers decided they didn't want their school to be called after Christopher Cash anymore because he was the inventor of a humane bolt gun for killing animals for meat in slaughterhouses with the minimum of suffering.
They changed the name to Joseph Cash, a cousin of Christopher Cash who played a leading part in Coventry's ribbon-making industry.
There are now plans to expand the school.
Numbers are rising because of house-building in the area and because the school is popular with parents.
