CHILDREN who attended school every day last year were given awards, with one winning a bicycle.

Attendance badges are given to youngsters at Windwhistle Primary School in Kingsley Road, on Weston’s Bournville estate, every term.

They are also entered into a draw at the end of each term to win a £10 voucher.

Those who attend school every day are also entered into a prize draw at the end of the year.

The winner was Laura from year five, who won the bike sponsored by Sally Norman.

A school spokesman said: “Well done to Laura and her family for helping her to achieve full attendance.”
