St. James' CE Primary School

About Us

Welcome to St James' Church of England Primary School

We hope you find this website useful and informative, as well as giving a flavour of the wonderful work the children are doing and the activities they take part in, both at Nursery and Key Stage 1, based at our Old Jamaica Road site, and at Key Stage 2, located in Alexis Street. Details of our Nursery provision are found here or under our 'Parents' tab.

The school day starts at 9.15am for our KS1 children, finishing at 3.15pm; at KS2 the children start at 8.55am and finish at 3.30pm. School clubs finish at 4.15pm. There is before and after school care provision available. At KS1 this is provided by our in-house club and at KS2 is run by Fit for Sport. Spaces for either of these are limited, click here  or the link under the 'Parents' tab to see all the details and organise a place for your child.

Do check our website regularly for announcements, calendar updates,  our Twitter feeds and weekly newsletter, which is published here, as well as being sent home with the children each Friday. You will find the children's work, activities and many wonderful achievements celebrated, both on their year and class webpages, as well as on the general curriculum pages, such as the Maths time table hall of fame, and a snapshot of what they have been up to is shown on the 'Our Term in Pictures' gallery on the home page. Year and class pages also contain information regarding homework, school and sporting trips.

We welcome your feedback via our 'Contact Us' button and look forward to hearing from you. If you require any of our website in printed form, please speak to the office staff who can organise paper copies for you.
