The school has a very close liaison with Hatherley Infant School, but we also admit children from other neighbouring schools.  Some new children will already be familiar with St. James' Church of England Junior School but all children who are registered to start in September will be invited along with their parents to an informal meeting during the term before the child is admitted.  There will be 3 opportunities to meet the Year 3 class teachers and to visit the child's future classroom.  These visit by the children should ensure that the children feel happy with their new surroundings when they come to us in September.
During the course of the year children from Infant Feeder Schools are invited to take part in joint activities so that transition between the two schools is as seamless as possible.
Parents who are moving into the area or who are considering sending their child to the school, are invited to contact the Headteacher to arrange a visit.
Any information that you consider to be of a personal or confidential nature please make an appointment to discuss with the Headteacher.
