St James E-News 

3rd February 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 

  • Safer Internet Day 7th February 2023 - we are making Safer Internet Day the focus of the whole of next week.  We look forward to getting involved and start discussions about what online safety means.


  • Sickness in School - we continue to ask you to help us minimise the spread of illness by only sending your child to school if they are well.   If your child has a stomach bug, please ensure that they do not return to school until 48 hours (2 days) after the last episode of either sickness or diarrhoea as they will still be infectious.
  • Christmas Jumper Exchange - a very enterprising group of parents are organising a Christmas jumper exchange in school later this month on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th February.  Please see the note on the Parent Portal for more information. 
  • Advertising Hub - have you discovered the Advertising Hub on our website? This is where we post advertisements for events that may interest you and includes holiday camps and events for the half term.
  • PTA Children's Disco - the decision has been made to move the date of the disco to Wednesday 22nd February due to a clash with possible strike action on 1st February.  Please see the letter on the Parent Portal and the information on the PTA News page of the website.  Disco forms need to be completed by the end of today if you wish your child to attend this popular event. 
  • The Music Works - is delighted to invite students at St James Primary School to join us for a free music group taster lesson of your choice (drums, guitar and keyboard)! To reserve your space, sign up at 
  • Drop in sessions with our Home School Link Worker, Helen Owen - The role of the Home School Link Worker (HSLW) is to support families with a range of issues at home or at school. 1:1 sessions are available on Wednesdays. To book an  appointment, email Helen on or ring the school office to request a call back.
