Attendance

At St James’ CE Academy we aim for all of our pupils to arrive on time and attend school every day. We work in partnership with pupils, parents and our Education Welfare Officer to ensure that attendance remains above the national average.

Regular Attendance
Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their children receive full time education. Regular attendance is essential if children are to progress with their learning.

Working together
It is the parent / carers legal responsibility to ensure their child/children attend school regularly unless they are ill. The school has a responsibility to do all it can to ensure that this happens.

Please let us know if you are having difficulties getting your child/children to school. We are able to offer support for families.

I particularly enjoy RE as I like learning more about God and Jesus, there is more and more to learn every day.
