The children who received a Gold certificate were treated to a pizza party at Frankie and Bennys in Camel Gate, Spalding, close to the Springfields Shopping Outlet and Festival Gardens.

The school awards achievement certificates throughout the year. These can be for hard work, for reaching goals and targets, whether they be academic, personal or sports related or even when a teacher decides a child should be rewarded.

Three of these achievement certificates means they are awarded their Bronze award; six certificates gains the child a Silver award, but nine certificates means children are awarded a Gold merit – the highest award possible in school.

A total of 28 children succeeded in achieving their Gold Award this year, and so were taken to Frankie and Bennys as their special treat.

A spokesman at the school said the children had a wonderful time, creating their own pizzas and waiting patiently for them to be cooked before eating them in the restaurant. Pizzas were followed by ice cream, so a real treat lunch for the children.

Headteacher Paul Reid said: “The children had a fantastic time and were really well looked after by the staff at Frankie and Bennys in Spalding.”

Mr Reid added: “The children tried exceptionally hard this year and it was lovely to see them enjoying their treat so much.”

• At the end of term, a total of 61 children in Year 6 said goodbye to St John the Baptist Primary School , as well as three members of staff – Mrs Clarke, Mr Johnson and Mr Midgley.
