Pupils learn about life as an MP

Pupils at Creeting St Mary Primary School got a first-hand lesson in Parliamentary democracy last week, when Dr Dan popped in for a visit.

Dan spoke to pupils in years 5 and 6 about his work as an MP and received a warm and interested welcome from children and teachers.

Five years ago, Dr Dan helped the school secure the necessary funding for an extension – allowing it to expand to house an extra classroom.

This has been put to good use, with Ofsted, in their most recent inspection, rating the school as 'Good' and commenting that the school's motto, 'Anything is possible', was demonstrated throughout the school.

Talking about the visit, Dan said:

"It was really heartening to go back to the school and see the good work being done there, and to meet and talk to a group of happy, motivated pupils.

"As so often tends to be the case, children ask some of the toughest questions. I think I got through it ok though!"
