St James' Catholic Primary School"We belong to the loving family of St James”




Our school family​ have been working hard since our return in September to keep everyone happy and safe in school. We have staggered our drop off and pick up times, as well as our playtimes.  Our children are now working and playing in their own bubbles. We are encouraging parents to leave the site as soon as they have dropped off and collected their children. 


Our protocols for dropping off and collecting children:

In order to reduce the number of adults dropping off and collecting children at any one time, we have allocated ten-minute time slots to parents of children in individual classes. Our plans ensure there is no change to the length of time your children spend in school. Parents are asked to adhere to these times. In the case of families with children in different classes, we ask that all siblings are dropped off together at the allocated time slot for the youngest child in the family, and that they are collected together at the allocated time slot for the eldest child in the family.
