New Reception Class Intake September 2020
Communication Regarding Transitions
We are fast approaching the summer term, and are beginning to organise the transition into school for our new 2020 Reception class starters.
You will have received an email invite to our Dojo page. All of our important documents and communications are on there so we encourage you to accept the invite so you can get all the information as quickly as possible.
This week, you will receive in the post a letter regarding the plans for transition as well as information about the class your child will be in. Class teachers will phone all parents on Friday this week (10.07.20) too for a quick catch up.

Additional Support Documents
We at St James Church School, would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school community. This is the start of an exciting seven-year journey for your child with us. It is essential that we establish a good relationship with you and your child so that they start school happy and confident. At St James Church School, we value our parent partnership links and we are really looking forward to meeting you.
We recognise the importance for all children to have a happy and settled transition into school and we would usually inform you of our induction process at this time. We would normally arrange the following:
- A welcome meeting
- Visits to nursery settings
- Stay and play sessions
- Home visits
The Covid 19 Crisis has had a huge impact on us all and therefore we are unable to organise these events at the current time. Rest assured, we will contact you at the earliest opportunity to notify you of our amended planned induction timetable when further guidance is issued from the Government.
Please contact the school office as soon as convenient to confirm your placement at St James Church School and to provide us with contact details which will enable us to call you in the coming weeks to welcome you to St James and ensure we are able to update you with important information.
