Last week I visited Barley Croft Primary School, in Beaumont Leys, where they held their Christmas Assembly.

Pupils and staff at the school also said goodbye to their headteacher, Kevin Lacey, after 14 years at the school. During his time as Head, Kevin has led the school to great success including improving its Ofsted rating from “Inadequate” to “Good”; overseeing a full refurbishment of the school; and developing a culture where children are inspired to enjoy learning, so they achieve their best.

I am really sorry to be saying goodbye to Kevin. He has been an absolutely inspirational Head, and I have loved seeing the fantastic, innovative way he has helped children engage with learning. I know how hard he has worked, and how much he has put into the school, so I wish him the very best on his retirement.

I was absolutely thrilled to join students at Beaumont Lodge Primary School on Friday for their World Autism Awareness Week assembly. They were looking at the importance of understanding and celebrating difference and the how important it is to be kind to each other.

They also asked me lots of questions about being an MP and were really keen to learn more about the Houses of Parliament.

I had an amazing time on Friday visiting Holmfield Day Care Centre’s Reminiscence Village. The village is mocked up as a 1940s/50s high street and offers people living with dementia a passage back through time. 

There are over 2,500 people living with Dementia in Leicester, projects like this can make such a huge difference to their daily lives. 

But without the dedication of all the staff and volunteers none of this would have happened – so I’d like to thank each and every one of the them, especially Anne Byrne who came up with the idea and is up for this year’s Leicester Live’s Dementia Carer of the Year award!
