WINDWHISTLE Primary School pupil Leon Downey was rewarded for his excellent attendance in the last school year with a new bicycle.

Youngsters at the school in Kingsley Road are awarded orange badges for 100 per cent attendance in the autumn term, green for the spring term, blue for the summer term and gold for the whole year.

Leon won the bike, which was donated by Somerset Business Club, after going into a draw at the end of the school year with others who had had 100 per cent attendance.

Headteacher Lyn Hunt said: “Good attendance is very important.

“Children who attend school regularly feel part of the school family, make more progress with their school work, mix more easily with other children and develop an awareness of the importance of good attendance which will help them in later life.”
