St James E-News 

11th February 2021

Welcome to the St James Primary School's E-News, a weekly roundup of the latest goings on at the school.

Latest Headteachers Blog

Dear Parents,

Half-term has felt a long time in coming, but we are (almost) finally there. It has been a long six weeks and I'm sure you are feeling it as much as we are! However, we have been hugely impressed by your dedication and hard work in supporting the children with their work.  We know it hasn't been easy and we are really hopeful that an end to lockdown learning comes quickly after half-term.

This week teachers are sending out messages of thanks to you, so please look out for these. I would also like the two parents who very kindly donated cakes to the staff room this week, and others who have donated previously, they were very much appreciated and very yummy! 

We all hope you have a wonderful half-term and enjoy time away from Teams and screens.

Best wishes,

Valerie Elliott
