Description of the school

St James is a smaller than average sized Catholic primary school serving the parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour on the outskirts of Birmingham. An average proportion of the pupils have learning difficulties and/or disabilities and an above average number of pupils have a statement of special educational needs.

The main needs are moderate learning difficulties and autism. The majority of pupils come from White British backgrounds. The school currently has 30 Reception-aged children who are taught in the Early Years Foundation Stage class.

School awards include Healthy School Status and the Activemark. St James' School is a member of the 'Border Busters' extended provision clus...ter. Fourteen schools work closely with local agencies, businesses, and voluntary groups and communities with the aim of improving the lives of children, young people and families living in the cluster area.
