School attendance is very important for every child to make the most of their education and to help them fulfil their potential. The Wildground Federation is committed to ensuring its level of attendance does not fall below 96%. With this in mind the Junior School run a scheme called 'School Attendance Matters' - SAM. It aims at encouraging higher levels of attendance throughout the week by awarding our mascot, SAM, to the class with the highest percentage attendance. At the end of term the class with the highest percentage attendance throughout the term will have a reward with SAM as the special guest.
Attending school regularly plays a vital part in successful learning.
Reporting your child’s absence
Please ring on the morning of each absence, you can leave a message if the school office staff are not available to take your call. On your child's return to school, please provide a note/letter covering your child's absence.
The Department for Education (DfE) asks schools to identify the reasons a child is absent from school. Authorised absences are for illness, dental/medical appointments, religious observance, school visits and approved sporting activities.
Other absences will be recorded as unauthorised.
