St James E-News 

17th March 2023

Welcome to the St James Primary School's E-News, a weekly roundup of the latest news and events at the school

School Notices 

  • St James Primary Bake  Off Final - the final takes place on Thursday  23rd March and will be judged on Friday 24th March.  We would like all children to wear their house tee-shirts on Wednesday 29th March when the results are announced. 
  • World Down Syndrome Day - is on Tuesday 21st March  and we will be encouraging everyone to come in to school with their funkiest socks on for the 'LotsOfSocks' awareness campaign.  Why LotsOfSocks? . . . well chromosomes under a microscope look like pairs of socks. People with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome; in fact, they have three of the 21st chromosome rather than just a pair.

  • SAVE THE DATE - Anxiety Talk for Parents Tuesday 28th March 9am - we have invited NHS Primary Mental Health Worker, Nikki Brunton Smith, to St James Primary School to talk to parents.  She will talk about understanding anxiety, how it presents and the solutions/strategies that can be used to support an anxious child. She will also offer a follow up session during which parents can drop in to ask specific questions about their child.  Please see the letter on the Parent Portal.  We are delighted that so many of you have said you would like to attend.  Please help us plan how much space we need to allocate for this meeting by completing the online form here if you plan to attend.
  • St James Rocks - These rocks have been beautifully painted by our ‘Colour Me Calm’ lunchtime club.  They will be hiding out and about very soon. Happy hunting! Please feel free to join our Facebook group; St James Rocks!
