A SUPERHERO turned up on time to congratulate schoolchildren in Knowsley on the success of their Attendance Fortnight.

The Attendance Hero has been touring schools in the borough to reward children who attend on time for school, including St Agnes RC Primary in Huyton. Emily Gerrard, learning mentor at the St Johns Road school, said: ``The Attendance Hero came to hand out certificates to pupils who turned up on time for two weeks.

``The school took part in attendance activities and we had prizes such as posters and pens from Liverpool Football Club to hand out.''

Barbara Huxley, Knowsley's school attendance improvement officer, said: ``Schools that have beome involved with the project have seen attendances improved.''
