THEY are the pupils who have made a roaring success of their time at a Hampshire school.

William Folliot and Isabella Porter have notched up a 100% attendance record at the 380-pupil Bartley CofE Junior School in Winsor Road, Bartley.

The two 11-year-olds have not missed a single day since they started at the school in September 2015.

They were presented with certificates in assembly yesterday and were congratulated by the school's "attendance lion" ROARY, which stands for Raising our Attendance Record Year.

Almost every school pupil misses the occasional day, usually through illness, but William and Isabella have turned up every morning for four years.

Head teacher Karen Stonehouse said: "It's extremely unusual to have two pupils with a 100% attendance record.

"William and Isabella both love school and make the most of every opportunity it has to offer. They are really good role models for their peers."

Both pupils spoke fondly of their time at the school, which breaks up today for the school holidays.

Isabella said: "It's a nice environment and the facilities are really good."

William added: "Everyone is kind and the staff are great."

The Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) rated the school as "good" after an inspection carried out in 2018.

In a letter to staff Ofsted said: "The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You are ambitious for the pupils and work hard to provide a well-rounded education in a very caring school.

"Pupils enjoy their time at school. They feel safe and well looked after and their parents and carers agree.

"Pupils enjoy their lessons and say that work is usually challenging, especially in writing and mathematics."
