School Attendance Matters (SAM)
We know that school attendance matters and we work closely with parents and carers to promote excellent attendance. We celebrate good attendance on both an individual and class basis to encourage regular attendance. We also work with the Local Authority and local schools in the Swanmore College Pyramid to promote good attendance.
Evidence shows that good attendance is important because:
· Regular attenders make better progress, both socially and academically
· Regular attenders find school routines and school work easier to cope with
· Regular attenders find learning more satisfying
· Regular attenders have an easier transfer to their next school
