Dear Parents and Carers of St James Primary

The PTA is collecting donations of bottles of drink for the Bottle Tombola, which is a popular stall forming part of the Summer Fair.  Please leave kind donations of any unopened bottles at the school office Friday, July 8th. 

The Summer Fair itself is on Friday 15th July, straight after school (please      click here to see the Summer Fair flyer and map). It is cash only.  Thanks to the parents who have already volunteered their time, if you have volunteered via the Google form but haven't heard from me, could you please get in touch? There's a chance that an email has gone into spam somewhere along the lines. If you would like to help on a stall, but haven't yet put your name down please do contact me - the more helpers we have, the more time the volunteers will have to enjoy the fair.  My email address is

The children from Boogie Pumps will be performing on the playground for all of us at the beginning of the fair.   

Well done to Lee Hicks and Tracey Gardiner for completing 100km walk that was delayed from last year. It must have required a herculean effort to get across the line, so we really appreciate your support. If you would like to donate, the link is below. They have raised over £800 so far for the PTA, which is fantastic.
