Angel in seventh heaven after award
A MIDDLESBROUGH school pupil has been recognised for achieving 100% attendance - over her entire primary career.
Angel Lees, from Brambles Primary Academy, has never missed a day of school since she started in nursery back in 2009.
She’s the only pupil to achieve a perfect record of attendance at the school for decades - and teachers have hailed her achievement as “absolutely phenomenal”.
Pastoral lead at the school Tracy Gill said: “Angel is a lovely young lady.
She said: “I’ve been at Brambles for 26 years and I’ve never experienced a child that’s achieved 100% attendance.
“She has lived with her nana Kath from being very small, so it’s recognition for her in getting Angel to school every day too. ”
Angel said Brambles was a “great school”.
She said: “I love it. I’ve missed zero days at school, you get badges a cinema trip and awards. I got a trophy.”
