Growing Together Achieves Excellence For All

Applications for free school meals and clothing grants are now open. By applying for either or both provisions now parents can ensure everything is in place ahead of the new school year.

Parents must make sure their application is received by the council no later than Friday 12 July to guarantee payment of clothing grants before the schools go back or to have free school meals from the start of term.

Those parents who have previously applied for free school meals and clothing grants will be sent a letter to their home address. If there has been no change in your family circumstances that affect any benefits you may receive, you can complete and sign the declaration form and return it to the council.

If there has been a change in your family circumstances or if you are applying for the first time, visit to complete an application form. You will also be able to read about eligibility for free school meals and school clothing grants as well as what information you need to include with your form.

Paper copies are also available for our school and from the Council’s customer service centres

Welcome to our website.

Our school website is designed to provide key information for parents whose children already attend St. James’ Primary School as well as for prospective parents considering sending their children to our school.

We hope our website conveys a sense of our very positive school ethos and our strong Catholic values.

St. James’ is a very welcoming, happy and caring school community where pupils are supported to achieve their full potential. Our pupils, staff and parents work together to ensure this and we are all very proud of our school.

If you would like more information about our school or you are able to contribute practically to school life, perhaps through sharing a skill or as a volunteer, please contact the school office.

With best wishes.

Head Teacher (Acting)
