COVID19 Transition Arrangements

Our transition team, led by our Vice Principal Nadia Bibby, have already begun to gather valuable information from your child's school about their achievements, educational standards, support and friendship groups etc. This information will enable us to start putting together their timetable in readiness for September.

As you will be aware, your child will be entitled to a complimentary uniform bundle. This bundle comprises of a blazer, pack of 2 long-sleeved white shirts, clip-on tie, 1 pair of trousers/1 skirt (optional for girls) and a full PE kit (excluding trainers).

Measurement for your child's uniform would normally take place on their transition day however, as current restrictions remain in place for schools, we have put alternative arrangements in place to ensure that you can receive your child's uniform in a timely and safe way and taking into account government guidelines around social distancing.

We have sent information packs to all parents that include a uniform order form and tape measure. These order forms will need to be completed and returned to us by Friday, 18th June by emailing the order form to transition@melior.org.uk. A How To Measure Your Child will have been included in your transition pack to enable you to do this. There is also a tutorial from SPT uniforms and can be accessed by clicking on this link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEJhIaoyf2fSsXXHOiexuqg/videos

To ensure that we are following current government guidance re social distancing, all uniform packs will be posted by week commencing 3rd August 2020.

In order to ensure all our incoming Year 6 are fully up-to-date with all information and preparations around transition, we are using the Class Dojo system and have sent individual account detail to you. This offers a great way to virtually become familiar with our school and key members of staff who will be involved with your child's transition https://www.classdojo.com/
