At Wroughton, we understand that our parents and carers want the best for their children and for them to get on well in life.

As a school our target attendance percentage is 96%.
|Attendance Percentage||Days missed over a school year||Sessions missed||Weeks missed|
|100%||0 Days missed||0 sessions||0 weeks|
|95%||9.5 Days missed||19 sessions||1.5 weeks|
|90%||19 Days missed||38 sessions||3 weeks|
|85%||28.5 Days missed||57 sessions||4.5 weeks|
|80%||38 Days missed||76 sessions||6 weeks or ½ a term|
Punctuality is vital because arriving late at school can be disruptive for children, their teacher and the other children in the class.
If a child if late in to school by 5 minutes each day, that adds up to 3 days of missed school in a year! Please speak to us about any support you might need to help your child arrive at school on time.
