October Half-Term

20 Oct 2022

A polite reminder that the school is closed tomorrow, Friday 21st October, and next week for the Michaelmas Half Term. The children are required to return to school on Monday 31st October. Please remember to order your child’s lunch in plenty of time for their return.

School will finish today at the usual time of 3.30pm for EYFS and KS1 and 3.40pm for KS2. After School Club will operate until 6pm and the Thursday activity clubs will ran as usual.

Families who are collecting Year 6 children from the Residential Trip in France should ensure their child is collected from St Pancras Station at 9.30pm.

The next edition of The Quill will be on Friday 4th November and I wish you all a restful and peaceful half term break.

Polio vaccine

5 Oct 2022

The risk is low, but it is very important to make sure your child is up-to-date with all their vaccinations, including polio.

Check your child’s red book or contact your GP if you don’t think your child has had them. Find out more about which vaccines are given to children on the NHS website. 

The booster dose will be given to children that are up-to-date with their routine vaccinations. If they are not, they will be offered the next poliovirus vaccine in their schedule.

The vaccine will be given to them through GP practices and other local providers, not schools, who will contact parents and carers when they are ready for them to come forward.

The flu vaccine will be given at our school on Thursday 20th October, please ensure you have completed the consent form by Wednesday 19th October at the very latest.

We’re showing racism the red card – Friday 14 October

2 Oct 2022

Wear Red
Every heart and every mind that we change, changes at least one life but has the capacity to change hundreds, if not thousands of others.
Be a proud anti-racist. Be the difference. Join us.

2021 was a monumental year for Saint Jérôme School as we were part of 250,000 incredible individuals who celebrated Wear Red Day. Without a doubt a sign that our school community is keen to stand against racism.

On Friday 14th October we will once again wear red to stand against racism. This can be an item of school clothing or any other red item.  We invite the children and all members of our community to pay £1, or donate a book to our school via our Amazon Wishlist you’ll find it here. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for continuing to stand against racism.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of staff.
