This week’s message (Friday 09 February 2024)

Friday 09 February 2024

The Spring 1 half-term has been a short one, and a busy one as ever. Wrapping up the half-term were parent-teacher meetings – thanks for attending the meeting to find out more about your child’s learning.

Attendance prize draw – we’ve a winner!

St James’ CE Primary is a happy and healthy place to be – and even a lucky one for Isabella in Year 2 – well done for having amazing attendance this half-term.

All pupils with attendance of 96% or higher were entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Love to Shop voucher! Isabella was the lucky winner, announced this afternoon.

Well done to all the pupils (and their families) who had great attendance in Spring 1:

We’re really pleased to see the whole school attendance figure rise in Spring 1, too.

Look out for another Attendance Prize Draw in the summer.

Holidays and training days 2024-25

While it seems we’re stuck in winter – certainly so with the snow yesterday – it’s worth looking ahead to brighter days! All the holidays and training dates for 2024-25 are confirmed – check out our school calendar if you want to start planning ahead.

Leeds Parent Carer Forum

The Leeds Parent Carer Forum is the way that the local authority and health partners engage and co-produce directly with parents and carers of children with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). In Leeds, this is a very new organisation. We’ve been asked to share their promotional flyer with you.

School policies

Finally for this week, Sphere Federation governors have asked us to remind you that most policies are available on our website – the Policies and Other Points page. If you can’t find what you might be looking for, please do ask. Your views on any of the policies are always welcome, too.

On a similar subject, please ask if you’d prefer paper copies of anything on the website.

Thank you for your continued support, as ever. Have a happy and healthy half-term holiday.
