Youngsters have been getting creative as part of a campaign to emphasise the importance of regular school attendance.
The city council’s education welfare service asked pupils at Marriott Primary, in Saffron Lane, and at other schools across Leicester to come up with puzzle ideas for a book to make other youngsters think about punctuality and attendance.
The finished book will be made available to primary schools to reproduce in-house so all children can enjoy the puzzles.
Councillor Vi Dempster, the council’s education spokesman, said: “We want to get all pupils involved as an incentive to attend regularly, and so they can be part of something fun.
“Regular attendance is vital in order for pupils to get the best out of their schooling, and we hope to encourage them to attend and take part.”
