St James E-News

Welcome back to a new term and I hope you all had a lovely break, managing to avoid the various bugs that seem to be circulating at the moment!
A new year brings new changes...we've looked closely at your responses to the Governor survey last term and one thing that was a consistent comment was the way we communicate with you each week. As a result we've decided to launch the St James E-news; this is a page on the website that links everything together, my blog, the PTA news, governor news, weekly letters and the school diary. A link to the page will be sent out each week and we hope this will make keeping up with school news a bit easier, so do let us know what you think.

This ethos definitely comes from the strong relationship between school and home and it is something we want to protect for the future.
Best wishes for a lovely weekend,
