Starting School

At St James we understand that starting school is a huge milestone in your child's and your life.

Each year we hold a welcome meeting for parents to help them understand what happens in Reception and Nursery and to become familiar with school routines. Once you have been offered a place at St James you will be invited to this meeting, which usually takes place in May/June. At the same time you will be invited to spend time in our Reception classes/Nursery Class, meeting the staff and becoming familiar with the environment. 

Here is a link to the powerpoint that we share at our new parent meeting
