Dear Parent / Guardian,
As we look towards the new term ahead it is important to consider the importance of how we all work together in our school community, that’s parents and school staff together supporting the children.
As parents you know your child inside out; what makes them happy, what makes them laugh, their favourite game, the food they like best. As teachers we know things about them too; who their friends are, what subjects they like doing, what things they find tricky.
It is when information flows back and forth and is shared between home and school that we form the best understanding of how your child learns. This is not only of benefit to your child because they learn more, it is also because it helps them develop in other ways too - their social development, their personal qualities. These are just as important also.
We want all the children at St James the Great to succeed in whatever they try. When children are successful at new things, they become more confident, and in turn this gives them the courage to try out even more new things. We might not be successful at everything in life - but we should never be too scared to try.
Let's work together so that our children become brave and courageous learners.
