KJ Linked - Weekly Learning Toolkit

07/07/2020 - KJ Linked Issue 13 released!

As you will have seen, the Government is encouraging secondary schools to consider a partial return for Year 10 and Year 12 students from Monday 1st June 2020. Our view continues to be that it is important that we take appropriate, extensive and considered actions to assure the safety of all members of our school community to make the right decision at the right time.

Attendance Support

Daniel Martin

At King James I Academy our Attendance Officer, Mr Martin, works closely with students and families to offer support and guidance with issues involving school attendance. Correspondence to parents through letters, telephone calls and meetings are supportive with the goal of securing a practical and positive outcome.


The school is aware that positive attendance can help students achieve to their best potential, whilst also preparing students for life outside of the academy. At King James we are also aware of the essential time that students can miss out on by not attending school, which include social inclusion and equal opportunities.  


We expect students arrive at their form rooms by 08:40am, with the expectation of all students achieving at least 95% attendance.


The Academy works closely with the School Attendance Improvement Team to ensure that acceptable levels of attendance are met throughout the school.


If you have any issues or queries regarding attendance, please do not hesitate to contact our school attendance officer, Mr Martin on 01388 603388
