Meet SAM Bear!
SAM Bear is our way of reminding children at Weare School that 'School Attendance Matters'.
SAM Bear encourages the celebration of what makes school enjoyable and interesting and how it helps them develop into confident, caring young people, capable of reaching their full potential.
Every week, during service time, we share the attendance for each class. This gives us the opportunity to talk about why we come to school and to find out about what is happening in the different classes. Of course SAM Bear understands that there will be times that children are not able to come in to school, but he is always very pleased to welcome them back again!
The class with the highest attendance looks after SAM Bear for one week, in their classroom and at the end of every half term, a certificate is given to the class with the highest attendance.
