Introducing our Staff 5

I joined St James over 20 years ago as a Classroom assistant, starting out in early years and year one and continued to work with these classes throughout my years at St James. I love my role as Teaching Assistant and have completed my Level 3. I enjoy supporting the children and watching them grow. I went to St James’ over 50 years ago, my children followed and my grandchildren too. St James’ is a fantastic school which has seen many generations of families grow up. Mrs Hogan

I started at St James’ in 2002 in the kitchen then was promoted to cleaning, whilst still in the kitchen. I then also managed to squeeze in doing Breakfast Club as well. I enjoy doing crosswords and DIY, watching live shows and singing, but not everyone likes listening to it! Mrs Kidd

I started at St James’ doing casual hours in 1987. After a few years, I had the opportunity to become permanent and be part of the cleaning staff. A few years down the line and after the previous caretaker retired, I was given the chance to take over as caretaker, a role I really enjoyed. I passed on the caretaking job and kept my cleaning hours in 2017. I also happily took on the role of one of the dinnertime staff. All the roles I have undertaken at St James’ have always made me feel like part of a good team. Mrs Stoneley

I was a pupil a St James’ many years ago! I am now a dinner assistant. St James’ is a very family orientated school who cares about the children. Staff are always supportive and available when needed. I have been a dinner assistant since 2019. I love working here and seeing the children so happy. Miss Fitton
