CHILDREN at Newchurch Primary School have been rewarded with book tokens for good attendance.

Youngsters with a 96 per cent attendance figure during the January to February half term were entered into a prize draw.

Names of 142 pupils from a total of 216 at the school qualified for the draw.

The winners were Gregory Mudge, nine, Molly Chubb, five, and Adam Shotter, 11, who received a £25, £15 and £10 book token respectively.

The prizes were sponsored by Sandham Business Services.

Headteacher Kirsty Howarth said the school was working very hard to improve attendance and hoped other businesses would step forward to sponsor the scheme.
