Our daily message (26 June 2020)

Friday 26 June 2020

Our final message this week comes from Miss Beatson, our Head of School…

We thought we’d update you on the staffing in school at present and in the future.

Currently, we have two Foundation/KS1 bubbles and two KS2 bubbles. Miss Harker and Miss Marsden are leading the F/KS1 bubbles. Mr Mills, Mrs Allen-Kelly, Mrs Rowley and Mrs Welsby are leading the KS2 bubbles.

Whilst the children who are coming to school are happy and relieved to be back into some kind of routine, school by no means feels complete. We miss our home learners enormously. Staff are working really hard to keep in touch by email, phone calls or even a wave through the fence. You’ve not been forgotten!

In September, the class teachers haven’t changed too much…

Foundation: Miss Marsden
Y1/2: Miss Harker
Y3/4: Mrs Welsby and Mrs Rowley
Y5/6: MIss Beatson and Mr Mills

We’re very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Allen-Kelly, who is leaving St James’ this term to teach at Scholes (Elmet) Primary, one of our federation schools. Mrs Allen-Kelly started at the same time as me three years ago. She has been a great member of the Early Years team and she’ll be missed. Miss Marsden will become the full time Early Years teacher.

The current Foundation parents will be emailed some Year 1 transition information next week to support the start in September.

Please email [email protected] if you have any questions or queries. Do get in touch if you’re struggling in any way.
