Virtual Joiner Pack

Welcome to our New Joiner or Transitioning Pupil Page!

You will be viewing this page for one of two reasons; either you are a new family joining the School or you are already part of the Manor House School community and your child is transitioning into Reception, Year 3 or Year 7. We have designed this page to allow you to easily access all the information and forms you need to complete, to start the new academic year in September 2021. Look out for a letter in the post enclosing a parent car park sticker and your child’s house badge (except Nursery) which will be dispatched before the end of term.

In the meantime, there are 3 steps to go through and we kindly ask you to submit your joiner forms by Tuesday 6 July (see Section 2). So, let’s get started!

1. JOINER HANDBOOK

Please read the Joiner Handbook, as applicable to your child’s entry year, to find out everything you need to know about processes and procedures at our School:

CLASSLIST (Parent Social Network)

We endorse Classlist (the school community social app) for parent communication between parents. You will receive an invite to Classlist during the summer holidays. Please look out for this in your inbox. We prefer Classlist as the official communications channel (over and above other platforms such as WhatsApp) as it is GDPR compliant.

2. COMPLETION OF JOINER FORMS (TO BE SUBMITTED BY TUESDAY 6 JULY)

Please complete all applicable joiner forms for your child’s entry point by Tuesday 6 July 2021– compulsory and optional. Click on the form link to submit your answers.

3. ORDERING YOUR SCHOOL UNIFORM AND PURCHASING ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT

New families should set up a uniform account with Schoolblazer.com which is useful whether you are purchasing new uniform, or buying items from the parent run second-hand uniform facility because it will allow you to access the correct sizing.

If you are looking for second-hand uniform, then please head on over to https://www.manorhouseschool.org/school-life/school-uniform/ where you can find more details on how to purchase this.

That’s it! Any questions, please email admissions@manorhouseschool.org – Otherwise, we look forward to welcoming you into our school community!
