Parish rewarded for sport success

Parish Church Primary School have been rewarded for their sporting success with a kitemark bronze award.

The excellence displayed last year in physical education and on the sports field impressed a panel of judges from the world of sport and the government.

A letter from the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport Maria Miller, education minister Michael Gove and health minister Jeremy Hunt congratulated Parish on their sporting endeavours.

PE and sport teacher John Anderson completed an assessment form on behalf of the school, via the Sainsbury’s School Games website, and Parish duly became one of two schools in Gainsborough and the Lincoln North area to achieve an award.

He said it was a great honour for the school to be rewarded by the government in this way: “We love seeing the children at this school enthused through PE and sport and learning both physically and mentally.”

Pupil Kacey Steel was delighted with the award.

She added: “I really enjoy being in the school sports teams and we can now aim for the silver award.”
