In the same week that Education Secretary Michael Gove predicted a bright future for Suffolk’s schools at a meeting organised by Dan with local head teachers in Woodbridge, Dan continued his focus on meeting with young people and our hardworking teachers when he visited to Otley Primary School.
Dan was given a tour of the small rural primary school by Headteacher Mrs Jan Hubbard, before speaking to the Student Council about the work he does as your local MP.
