Here at St James Primary School Attendance is very important!
Our school attendance target for this academic year is 97%, you can help keep St James’ attendance levels up by following these few simple steps:
- Arrange all non-urgent medical, dental and optician appointments outside of school time.
- Get to school on time, everyday.
- Inform the school office if your child is going to be absent from school.
Top Class – Every week we have an attendance competition between our year groups. The year group with the best attendance that week are awarded with Alexander in class!
Did you Know?…
A child that achieves 95% attendance still equates to 50 lessons missed per year!
Being 15 minutes late each day is the same as missing 2 weeks of school!
If you would like your child to join St James Primary School you will need to contact Walsall’s school admissions team to check for vacancies in your child’s required year group, if a space is available, complete all of the necessary paperwork and then liaise with us to get your child settled in as smoothly as possible.
