Welcome to Reception, the year when the foundations for the future are laid.

In Reception we teach the children how to begin to live out our Mission Statement and ‘Together we are Learning to Follow Jesus. We do this by encouraging them to always try their best in everything they do and through the positive friendships that they make throughout the school.

Our aim at St James’s is to provide a high quality early learning but most importantly the children learn through having fun.

Play is the most natural way in which children explore the world around them.

Your teacher is Miss Eustace and your teaching assistants are Mrs Malone and Mrs Hogan.

We are joined every morning by our wonderful volunteers Grandma Alice and Grandma Pam.
