St James the Great Catholic Primary School

School Update 22nd April 2021

Dear Parent / Guardian,

Happy Easter!

We are delighted to be starting this new Summer Term with the joy of Easter and renewed hope in the future. The children have returned to school ready and eager to learn and the class learning environments are vibrant places to be in.

For now, we are maintaining our ‘Covid safe’ practices and routines to ensure everyone’s safety but we do hope that as this term progresses we will be able to do more and more of those ordinary but for now, extra things, that we love about school; like meeting friends from other classes at playtime or even…….trips! Let’s say a prayer for hope and joy.

Some important notes and reminders:

We know that we are clearing our site in 7-8 minutes, that is great collaboration from everyone. Whilst queuing and walking through the one-way system please try to maintain those distances.
