School Start Junior school Year 4 at IES Täby August 2021


Dear Students and Parents,

We are delighted to be able to welcome all of our new year 4 students in junior school to our start of school ceremonies at 13.00 on Tuesday 17th August 2021.  All our junior school year group assemblies take place during Tuesday in our student lounge areas in the Senior school on Nytorpsvägen 7A.  After the welcoming ceremony the students will then proceed to the junior school building accompanied by their mentor for registration and their first mentor time in their mentor class. Parents are welcome to pick up their children at the school entrance (see program schedule). 

Year 4: Student,Parent,Teacher meetings week 33

During the first two days of the autumn term we start with a 20 minute introductory talk (student, guardian and mentor) for all of our new students starting in year 4. These meetings will take place during week 32 on Tuesday morning 17th August and on Wednesday 18th August. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet your child's new mentor and get to know each other as well as discuss your child’s individual academic and social needs. The new mentor will assign a day and time to meet you and your child and this time will be sent out at the beginning of August during week 32.

Due to the C-virus we may need to make slight changes to our assemblies and meetings in line with FMH recommendations. We will update all parents with any changes as and when we can to comply with safety regulations in our school.


Introduction Day on Thursday 19th August

Year 4 students will have their introduction day on Thursday 19th August with their mentor class and lunch is provided. There is no regular school for year 4 on Tuesday and Wednesday. Students have a home introduction task for Tuesday the 17th August and the regular school schedule starts on Friday 20th.  Our after school “Junior Club” also opens on Thursday 19th August.

We hope you have a wonderful summer in these challenging times and we look forward to seeing all our new year 4 students on Tuesday 17th August 2021.


Best Regards

Principal Mr. Alastair Wither
