Welcome to Reception, the year when the foundations for the future are laid.  The staff in this class are Miss Eustace, Mrs Childs and Mrs Hogan.

Have a look at all the fun we get up to at St James’, showing the classroom and our outside area:


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 Miss Stoneley and Mrs Hogan.

We are joined every morning by our wonderful volunteer  Grandma Pam.
