Kennet Valley Primary School pupils learn about Brexit

Claire Perry MP receives a bouquet and thank you card from Kennet Valley School pupilsClaire Perry MP receives a bouquet and thank you card from Kennet Valley School pupilsPupils at Kennet Valley C of E Primary School in Lockeridge were able to find out about Brexit first hand when local MP the Rt. Hon. Claire Perry visited the school on Friday January 25.

School council pupils gave Claire Perry a guided tour of the school which she described as “bright and buzzy.”  The Foxes class, Years 5 and 6 pupils, entertained her with their singing as they practised for the Voice in a Million Concert to be held in the Wembley Arena in March.

She talked to the Otters, Year 4 pupils and the Foxes, Years 5 and 6 about what it was like to be an MP and answered their questions about her job including one about Brexit!

Pupils also learnt about other aspects of her life, such as her favourite animals, where she would like to travel to and what other jobs she would have liked to have done if she had not become an MP. 

Emma Russell is Headteacher:  “It was brilliant to see our children ask such thoughtful questions and, as always, I am very proud of them all”. 

Claire Perry also spent time with Emma Russell, and several members of the Board of Governors to discuss the school’s challenges – staffing and cost pressures as well as the school’s future improvements and plans.

Writing on her weekly blog about the visit, Claire Perry commented:  “Damian Hinds, Secretary of state for Education has confirmed to me that nationally the UK spent as much, per pupil on primary and secondary state education as any country in the G7 (apart from the USA) …But there is always more to do and I will continue to make the case with colleagues in Westminster for more support for our local schools.”

Emma Russell said:  “We would like to say a huge thank you to Claire Perry for coming to visit our school, and very much hope that she comes back soon for another visit.”
