SAM (School Attendance Matters!)

'SAM' is a the acronym for the Wakefield scheme ' School Attendance Matters'. And attendance in school really does matter. If you can come to school every day, on time and ready to learn, it helps you in two major ways;

1- It makes sure you get as much education time as you possibly can.

2-It prepares you for adult life by helping you learn that punctuality and attendance in all walks of life (such as a job) are important.

The following powerpoint was presented in 2015 by our Education Welfare Officer. It has some interesting ideas and advice for you!
