Welcome to Busill Jones Primary School, where every day is a day to learn something new.
Please click on the links to learn about who we are and what we do.
Busill Jones Primary School exists as a place where children whatever their race, colour or creed can work in a secure environment. They will learn to respect each other, their families, friends, traditions and of course, themselves.
We, at Busill Jones, are concerned with the whole education of the child. We hope, above all, that each child will develop fully to his or her potential by providing equality of opportunity throughout the curriculum.
Our aim is to provide skills and knowledge for the children to understand the world around us, and for use in adult life.
We aim to develop young people who have experienced some success in school and have positive attitudes about themselves, and children who are becoming socially aware and will become caring members of the society.
The school supports the Primary Curriculum Aims of Walsall Education Authority, promoting and fostering development of skills, interests and attitudes which are appropriate to the intellectual, physical, emotional and social stages of each child's development.
Ethos of the School
The School seeks to actively influence the personal development of all pupils and emphasis is placed on a strong moral code. In developing and following this code, the importance of the 'Hidden Curriculum' cannot be overstated
At Busill Jones Primary School, we take attendance very seriously. It is important to us because every child deserves an education. We are committed to providing the very best learning and this is achievable when every child is in school.
We are striving to reach the national average for Attendance which is 96% and value parents/carers support in making this happen.
We take attendance really seriously but we need parents and carers to work with us in order for us to meet our target. We can do this!
Our School Target is 95.2%
If your child cannot attend school for any reason, please contact the school office on 01922 710700 on the first day and any subsequent day that they cannot attend.
If it is an illness, please provide any evidence of medical care such as a GP appointment card, prescription note or medical packaging. This will support with ensuring a valid reason of absence is recorded for the Local Authority.
Impact of lateness
Being 15 minutes late each day is the same as missing 2 weeks of school.
Lost minutes = Lost learning
We believe that everybody at Busill Jones is part of our school community and through positive behaviour, children will have a greater chance to achieve their personal goals.
To help us to achieve this all of our school know our school goals...
