Reception intake 2022-2023

As the parents of children who are starting Reception in September 2021, you are no doubt looking forward to the September start.  Ordinarily, we would have invited you in for a special meeting but, instead, we look forward to you all seeing the children's new teacher in June.  More details have been sent to every parent individually.

Welcome from Mrs Footman


Hello! My name is Mrs Footman and I am the Reception Teacher at Saint James'.  In September, I will be welcoming children into class.  The first week of term will be a part-time entry to school. This will be mornings or afternoons.  Parents should receive a letter very soon about this.  Most of the information is below.  It would be really useful if the children could complete the 'All About Me' pack and bring it to school on your first appointment.
