Each 'Be Malet Ready!' activity will have a different submission method. The first activity is to be held onto until pupils meet their form tutor. One of the next activities will be automatically submitted electronically and future activities may require no submission at all. We are not in the position where we can produce a workbooklet as the activities are not developed yet, but we want pupils to begin now.
We are planning for the transition days as originally scheduled however this could be subject to change, but we hope not. As soon as we know anything we will share our response/plans with parents via the usual communication channels.
Steady School & Sportswear assure us that they have plenty of uniform in stock. They are asking parents/carers to make orders online and they wlll distribute as soon as they can have staff in. You may wish to wait until you know which tie to order or if you are unsure of sizes.
You will not be able to do this until we have sent you the details of your child’s tutor group and house. This will be in June.
We no longer group on friendships for tutor groups as the structure of the school day has changed and pupils are spending short periods of time within these groups per day. Your child will spend their day in multiple different groupings for each subject and also tutor time. This gives Year 7 pupils a greater opportunity to mix with other children and form new friendships. We review our processes and system regularly and this system of grouping has been in place since 2018. We have had no issues or negative feedback from Year 7 pupils that have been grouped in this way. We do try to work with families if they feel there is a specific reason for their child to be 'kept away' from another pupil where possible, for example, due to negative experiences at primary school.
Fingerprints are collected as part of the transition days and require no input from parents other than the signed biometrics consent letter.
Trousers and skirts purchased from our supplier, Steady School & Sportswear come with the required logo already applied. For parents that wish to shop elsewhere for trousers/skirts, we offer a number of sessions over the Summer holidays for the uniform to be checked and have the logo applied. These dates are unconfirmed at present but we will communicate these to parents as soon as we have them.
We hope to allocate tutor groups and houses and communicate these to pupils in June.

One of the key ways to prepare is to develop their independence skills. Our “Be Malet Ready” activities will really help with this so please encourage your child to complete them.
