Youngsters at a West Norfolk school were treated to a celebratory lunch as a reward for their hard work.

The 30 lucky children from Nelson Academy, in Downham Market, visited Frankie and Benny's Restaurant in King's Lynn with governors and staff.

They were recognised at a governor's certificate-giving ceremony at the school for their efforts throughout the Autumn term.

Two children from each class were awarded certificates for either excellent academic achievement or for being an outstanding role model.

Principal Sarah Wilson said this incentive was introduced in September 2016 to encourage hard work and dedication in the classroom, which has now become a regular event.

She added: 'Today has been another great success and we look forward to repeating the certificate-giving and surprise celebration every term as a 'well-done' to the children for all their hard work.'
