Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

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.”
