Dear Mums, Dads and Carers

I know that this is a very difficult time for you as you prepare for your child to leave JWIS and join us here at JWJS.  We want to make this transition as seamless as possible.  We are working with the infant school at present to ensure that our teachers know all of your children before they join their classes in September.

Over the next few weeks we will be planning our return in September and we will update you once these have been finalised.  As you are most probably aware, we are waiting guidelines from the Government on how we are to organise this.  Please do look at the PowerPoint by clicking on the link below which will give you more information about how JWJS is run and what we will be doing during transition week.  By the end of this week, you will be advised of what house your child is in.  Unfortunately, at present, we will not be able to offer any transition days this side of September.

If you would like any questions answered, I am in school every day and available to call on 01322 522151.

Take care 

Mrs Watson

In this unprecedented time, we know that our usual transition events will possibly not take place.  However, we are planning lots of events that we can do virtually and will send you information about these over the next few weeks.

You will find all the new admissions information on our website: https://www.joydens-wood-junior.kent.sch.uk/key-information-1/admission-arrangements/admissions-year-3 Please ensure that you have read all of the information before completing your admission form.

We will not be sending out any paperwork to be completed, but we do require our standard admission form be filled in online.  Please can this be completed by Friday 5th June.  The form should take you approximately 30 minutes to complete.  It must be completed in one sitting.  Unfortunately, you cannot save it and return to it.       

In the meantime, should you have any questions/queries please do not hesitate to contact us.   We are in school every day answering calls from 8.30am – 4.00pm or email the school office at office@joydens-wood-junior.kent.sch.uk

We very much look forward to welcoming you and your child to Joydens Wood Junior School in September.

Yours faithfully
