Sporting staff and pupils at Gainsborough’s Parish Church Primary School are celebrating are finding out that their P.E. and School Sport has been nationally recognised by the Government.
All schools in the country are invited to apply for the Sainbury’s School Games Award after completing an audit of their P.E. and Sport in eight different categories over the past 12 months for the school year 2013/2014.
Parish submitted their entry in the summer and have just found out that they have moved up from the Bronze level they had received the year before to the improved Silver level.
Teacher John Anderson who completed the application was delighted that the school had again gained an award and was even happier that they had made progress to the Silver level.
“To move up a level in only a year is fantastic and shows the dedication and ability of the staff and children to make sure P.E. lessons and all extra curriculum sport is of high standard,” he said.
“There were only three schools in the whole of the Gainsborough and the north of Lincoln area to get Silver, so we are very proud.”
Pupil Charley McLean said, “We love our sport and had lots of great experiences last year as well as winning lots of events.
“We work really hard at all our subjects in school and it is great to finds out we are doing so well at sport.”
