As you may already be aware, the Education Committee today approved the recent consultation on proposed new arrangements to school admissions, the transfer of pupils from primary to secondary school and placing requests.
School admissions, pupil transfers from primary to secondary and placing requests will be administered in line with the new arrangements from January 2017 and beyond. Any placing request applications for school places in academic session 2017-18 submitted before January 2017 will be accepted however, please note that they will be processed in line with the new policy; there will be no need for parents/carers to submit another application.
As part of the changes to our arrangements, an online facility is now available for the submission of placing requests; please find the link below:
You will have noticed recently some of the emails from the school look slightly different. This is because we are changing to a new system of contacting parents called Group Call.
This system will allow us to :
- email and text as we do at the moment. At the moment we can only send to the main contact. This should change in January. This makes it all the more important that you update us with any changes to your email address and mobile number.
- inform parents by email much more easily about school closures etc in the case of bad weather.
In January there will also be:
- an app called Xpressions allowing you to see updates and information from the school. We will send out more information nearer the time but you can look at the information on the Groupcall website. http://parents.groupcall.com/
Keep your eyes peeled for updates here.
Thursday 15th December is the date for the new Parent Pay system to be introduced to St Joseph’s. You will be sent an activation letter nearer that time with a user name and password. The work to introduce the system may last for up to a week. Initially you will only be able to pay for school meals but as this changes we will notify you about paying for Lockerbie Manor, school trips etc.
Please make sure your child’s lunch account has sufficient funds on the 15th to last them for a week.
All balances including outstanding money owed will be transferred to the new system.
We will notify you as soon as it is open to use by parents.
Both of these new systems use the email address and the mobile phone number you have supplied to the school therefore it is very important keep us updated with any changes to either of these.
The first Parent Equalities Forum of this session will take place on 15/9/16 in Mearns Castle HS from 7-8pm.
