  • Latest Newsletter - Friday 23rd February 2024

    Published 23/02/24

    We’ve had a really busy first week back! Years 3&4 children in Belgium class and 5 India have started swimming lessons; Y1&2 attended a terrific Bright Sparks Concert at the Royal Festival Hall; Violin and Recorder lessons continue for all children; our Monday after school clubs continue for the Spring term and children’s learning – particularly with their History topics – has been really super!

    More trips and events are coming with what will be a very busy half term – keep checking the attached diary dates sheet which is reissued regularly.

    Our Collective Worship theme continues to focus on Genesis and the life of Joseph.

    Wishing you, your families, and our whole community a great weekend
     God bless, from the St. James’ team
