Dr Dan helps local school to expand and meets with young people in Suffolk during busy day of school visits

Dr Dan is given a tour of Eye Primary School by Headteacher Margaret MassieGiving each and every child in Suffolk the very best start in life and the chance to fulfil their full potential is something Dan strongly believes in as your local MP, and he regularly visits local schools to meet teachers and talk to the children. Last week, Dan visited Creeting St Mary, Mendlesham and Eye Primary schools. He met with the Headteachers and staff, before talking to pupils in years 5 and 6 about the work he is doing as your local MP and answering their questions.

When he last visited Creeting St Mary Primary School, he heard about the importance of linking Creeting St Mary to the Debenham Academy pyramid of schools, which would require a new classroom to be built at Creeting St Mary Primary to allow pupils to continue there into years 5 and 6. After his last visit, on behalf of the school, Dan asked Bishop Nigel Stock of St Edmunsbury and Ipswich to see if church funds could be made available to make this extension possible and is delighted that work is now underway to build the new classroom.

Dan would like to thank Headteachers Lyn Spall, Clare Jones, and Margaret Massie for inviting him to meet with the pupils and he looks forward to visiting again soon.
