Important: school is completely closed on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

Tuesday 24 March 2020

So far this week, we’ve remained open for a small number of children of critical workers and children who may be vulnerable in some way. Today, there was only one child; tomorrow, we expect only two.

Being the only child in school isn’t an especially nice experience, and it’s not a good use of staff.

Parents of the two children expected tomorrow are able to transport their child to our sister Sphere Federation schools – Moortown Primary and Scholes (Elmet) Primary. (Thank you to the two parents.)

This means that staff can stay at home and now act as substitutes if and when we have a drop in staffing. This in turn means we’ll be able to stay open for children of critical workers.

If you were expecting your child to be at St James’ tomorrow, please contact:
