St Jérome School officially recognised as an excellent school for the teaching and promotion of the French Language.

6 Sep 2019

We are delighted to announce that we are the second school in the UK to be awarded the prestigious Label France Education for outstanding provision in the teaching of the French Language by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs. This is an exceptionally important accolade and milestone in the development of our school. The award enables us to join a network of the best schools around the world teaching and promoting the French Language. Inspectors and government officials who visited the school in the summer term commented on the exceptional ease and fluency with which our children could speak, read and write in the French language. They noted the strong progress that was evident from Early Years to the end of Key Stage 1 and the way in which the children’s knowledge and understanding of French was also supporting their learning in English.

We are immensely proud of our children and the staff team who have worked tirelessly to ensure that all children are passionate and confident linguists.

20 Jul 2019

Each year in July we run our end of year survey. The forty-four questions may make the survey a little long, but the majority of questions are simple tick boxes. We do really value your feedback, so make yourself a drink and spend a little time, about five minutes, with our survey.

Get reading this summer

19 Jul 2019

Yesterday we were delighted to be joined by Harrow Library Service.
Over the summer they are running a reading scheme to encourage children to read more.
The Rocket family have noticed that books are being stolen from the library on the moon and your children can help them!
Children get a summer reading passport and receive a sticker for each book read. Once they have read six books they will receive a certificate and a medal.
If your child is not already a member of a library, do consider signing them up, it is free. They can then borrow books for up to three weeks.

A new class name in Reception

16 Jul 2019

As we move forward, the names of our Reception Classes are changing.
From September 2019 Monet remains but Renoir is replaced by Matisse. This will make it easier for children to tell the work of these two great artists apart.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Matisse. Here is a cartoon about him and his work.

As usual we recommend that you do not allow child to view YouTube unsupervised.
