St. James' CE Primary School

Welcome to Year 3 including our Alexis Street virtual tour

Dear Parents/Carers of children in Year 3 20/21,

Ordinarily we would have invited you to Key Stage 2, Alexis Street site for a guided tour, coffee and chat so you could familiarise yourselves with the new surroundings your children will be coming to in September. Our Year classes are 3 Norway and 3 Sweden.

Instead we thought we would do a short virtual tour of the building, it is very different from Old Jamaica Road!  For instance, there are bigger playgrounds, two halls, lots of hubs, two staircases, a different drop off system (children usually line up in the playground, we will of course let you know about this due to the COVID situation).  

Every year we are always delighted that the new Year 3 children very quickly become used to Alexis Street and before long they are settled and know their way around.

They will see familiar faces there, with Mrs Willis, Mr Oliver and Mr Wood still greeting them at the gate, Mrs Brenta will also be there for any assistance and reassurance you might need as your children start their Key Stage 2 journey.

If you need to book before and after school provision please follow this link to Fit for Sport, who run both clubs at Key Stage 2. You will need to register on this web site and book directly with them.

If you have any questions please do let us know. 

We look forward to seeing you in September, meanwhile we hope you enjoy our virtual tour below, created by some of our Year 6 leavers.
