Every week I try and visit one of our local schools, because I believe giving children the best possible education is the key to our future success. On Friday 15th January I visited King Richard III Infant School , where I took part in their assembly, congratulated the students on their achievements for the week and spoke about my role as their local MP. I also met with the school’s Head teacher, Mrs Barrett, who told me about the excellent work they are doing to boost achievement and attainment.
One of the things the school teaches children is to try hard and never give up, because anything is possible. I completely agree!
