St James the Great Catholic Primary School


Friday 4th September 2020

Dear Parent / Guardian,

It is with great joy that we can report to you that well over 90% of our pupils returned to school this week and have remained safe and happy. We will continue to welcome back our remaining pupils in Nursery and Reception classes over the coming week.

Some important notes and reminders

Year 1 – 6

School opens at 8:40  (parents drop off at the main gate)

Lessons begin at 8:50

End of day 3:25  (Parents should collect children at 3:25 in the usual way in the playground.

There is a one-way system in place but this is simple to negotiate once you are on site.)

Nursery and Reception

Children and parents/ carers should enter and leave via their own gate just as they did in the Summer Term and at the same times so:

Nursery start at 8:40 and finish at 3:20 ; Reception start at 8:50 and finish at 3:25

Please maintain Social Distancing whilst dropping and collecting children

We will expect all children to return to school in full school uniform and PE kit.

Please send your child to school in their PE kit on Thursday

BREAKFAST CLUB will resume from Monday 7th September.

Drop off from 7:50

Sunday MASS IS CELEBRATED at the usual times.

Please go along. You will need to wear a mask in church and wear your coat as the windows will be open for fresh air!

We pray that, with the help of God, we will have a safe, happy and successful year of learning ahead of us all.
