Re: Y2 –Y3 transfer to OLOG Junior School
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am delighted to welcome you to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Junior School as we look forward to your child(ren) transferring to our school in September 2020.
Due to the unexpected and unusual circumstances that all schools find themselves in (caused by COVID-19), we are not permitted to invite you into school for a transfer meeting as we normally would. Instead, we have created this page on our website where you and your children can gain information about our school which we hope will assist you in the transfer process. We are aware that there is a lot of information to read and process but it is important that you read everything in order to be fully prepared for September.
The children that were in 2 St Catherine will be in 3S with Miss Stanworth and for those in 2 St Vincent your child will be in 3M with Miss McCormick. The Year 3 children will be starting with us at 8.50am on Thurs 3rd September.
You will shortly be contacted (by email) by a company called Care Monkey (this name will be changing to Operoo in August) who will ask you to complete all the pre-admission information that we require. We would ask that this is completed by 13th July in order for us to get everything set up before the end of this term. If you do not receive an email from them by 10th July, please contact our school office on (0208)4506002.
As all schools are currently awaiting Government guidance which will direct them as to how schools will need to be managed in September 2020, the information presented on this page represents, to the best of our knowledge, what we feel will be relevant for you in September 2020. However, any information is subject to change as the Government’s plan for schools becomes known to us. Therefore, we would ask you to keep checking this page over the Summer break for any updates that will impact upon the new Y3 classes.
Should there be any issue that you feel needs to be communicated to the school urgently during the break, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your child’s name in the subject of the email.
We do hope that you find the information provided here useful and we wish you, and your families, a restful and enjoyable Summer.
Before and After School Provision
Please note that from September, we will be able to offer our before school (Early Bird) club at a cost of £3 per session. This runs from 7.45am and needs to be paid for online via our school payment system which we will set you up with at the beginning of term.
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer any after school clubs and the after school provision at the Infant School (Busy Bees) will also not be running until January at the earliest. This means that your child will need to be collected at 3.15pm every day.
Full details are in the letter below.
Updated equipment list below
Please note children will now need their own scissors and erasable whiteboard pen in September to ensure that they do not need to share any equipment with other children. The equipment list has been updated.
