Year 6 Transition

Welcome to Mulberry School for Girls and the start of your 7-year learning journey with us.

Making the move from Year 6 to Year 7 is an exciting time, with lots of changes to prepare for; new school, new teachers, new friends, new uniform, to name but a few. We would normally have had an induction day where you can come into the school and experience lessons and activities and have a chance to meet your teachers and classmates. Obviously, due to the circumstances we find ourselves in, this will not be possible.

You will have been contacted by a member of staff at the school to welcome you to our school community and many of you attended one of our virtual induction sessions. This was one of your chances to ask any questions you may have but also for us to provide you with a range of information about the starting at Mulberry School for Girls. If you would like to watch a recording of one of these events and teachers responses to several important questions asked by new students and parents then click the link below:

As part of being ‘Mulberry ready’ for September, we have asked all new pupils to complete an induction booklet. This has been emailed to all parents, if you would like another copy then please email a member of the Year 7 Transitions Team.

We understand that this transition can be a little daunting too. Our Transitions Coordinator, Ms Spellman, works closely with primary schools to make your transition as easy as possible. Ms Spellman and the Year 7 team at Mulberry School for Girls are all here to help you and are very friendly and welcoming as you will have seen from the video.

Please do check our frequently asked questions section which may be able to answer any queries you may have. If at any point you have any questions or issues then make sure you ask:

Frequently asked questions

Q: What uniform do I need to wear? Where do I purchase the uniform?

Please find the Uniform Policy here on our website.

You can purchase bespoke school uniform items (blazer, tie, PE t-shirt, jumper, Shalwar Keemez) from the following two suppliers:
Khalsa Schoolwear, 388 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 0AH
Ocean Designs Schoolwear Ltd, 10 Watney Market, London, E1 2PR.

All other uniform items can be obtained from suppliers of your choice.

Q: Am I able to apply for financial support towards purchasing a school uniform?

Tower Hamlets Council provides financial support towards the cost of school uniform. To find if you qualify for this support please see this link on the council’s website.

Q: How do I pay for my lunch?

You pay for lunch using a card you will receive on your first week at school. Then parents will be required to pay for your lunch using ParentPay. We will contact you in September to confirm this.

Q: What will I get rewarded for?

You will get rewards for doing the right thing. Your teachers will give you rewards for outstanding effort and hard work. Your Year Learning Coordinator (Head of Year) will give you rewards for 100% attendance and punctuality as well as consistent hard work in all subjects.

Q: What will I get a detention for?

If you complete your work, show respect to staff and your peers, are on time to school, bring the correct equipment, complete your homework and wear the correct uniform you will not get a detention.

Q: What if I get lost and cannot find my classroom?

If you cannot find the correct classroom, there will be lots of staff around to help you, make sure you ask. You will also receive a map. You will not get in trouble in the first couple of weeks for getting lost. You will also be given a tour of the school in the first couple of days at school to help you get around.

Q: What if I forget something?

Teachers will be understanding in the early weeks of the term. If you need something important, make sure you speak to Ms King, Ms Spellman or Mr Bailey.

Q: What is the school planner and how do I use it?

The planner is a communication tool between home and school. You will be expected to write any homework that you have in the planner. It is really important that your parent/ guardian signs the planner each week to show they have checked your homework. The planner also includes the uniform and equipment list and the behaviour policy and lots of other important information.
