A Visit from the Rt Hon Sir Alan Duncan MP
This afternoon we had a very important visitor to school. Sir Alan Duncan, MP, visited our school to see what we were doing and to speak to Mrs Davis.
Mrs Davis wrote a letter to the Secretary of State for Education, Nicky Morgan MP, a few weeks ago, telling her all about our school and what it is like to teach in a small school. She copied the letter to Alan Duncan as our local MP. Alan Duncan then contacted the school to arrange to come and visit us and see us in action.
Alan Duncan visited each class and spoke to the children about the school. He asked Class 1 what they knew about the government and where he worked and they were able to share what they had learnt about taxes in their RE lesson on Zaccheus the day before! In Key Stage 2 the children were writing about the eclipse and talked to him about what it would be like if the sun disappeared permanently.
Mrs Davis, Mr Chalkley (our Chair of Governors) and Mrs KK were able to talk to Mr Duncan about the challenges small schools face and a little about the way our school works.
