Welcome to the Friends of St. James'
The Friends of St. James' are a group of parents, family members and staff who organise events to raise money for the 'little extras' that make our school special!
The school has an active PTA who raise money and organise additional events such as discos and summer fairs so that the children can have additional resources. This year the PTA bought book bags for the new reception children and leavers books for the Year 6 children.
They also fund some of the prizes given to the children such as the Easter competitions and extreme reading competitions.
Check the Newsletters for the next meeting date and please don't hesitate to come along - new members are always welcome!
We'll be very pleased to see you!
