A SCHOOL leaver has followed in her sister’s footsteps in not missing a single day of school.

Cayton Bennett, 11, left East Tilbury Juniors with her head held high after receiving an award recognising her 100 per cent attendance during four years of key stage two learning.

In September she will move up to St Clere’s School and join sister Brea, who won the same award when she left East Tilbury last year.

Cayton, of Princess Avenue, East Tilbury, was also a librarian at the school and achieved bronze, silver and gold awards during her time at the school.

Mum Jane said she wasn’t sure exactly what she doing to make her children so punctual but said she was very proud of them.
