Dan regularly meets with our hard working Headteachers and staff at our local schools in Suffolk, to keep in touch with their main concerns and to take up any pressing issues they may have. Last week, he visited Stradbroke High School to discuss some of the challenges facing our small rural schools with Head teacher Andrew Bloom, along with Head of Laxfield Primary School David Dee and the interim Head of Fressingfield Primary, Mary Wilson.
A number of topics were discussed, including the importance of school sport for young people and funding for Special Educational Needs provision at our rural schools. Dan is a strong supporter of our rural schools in Suffolk and has raised his concerns surrounding the challenges they face with Government Ministers on many occasions. These challenges include the cost and availability of transport for pupils to and from school and lower pupil admission numbers.
Following his meeting with the Headteachers, Dan conducted a question & answer session with some of Stradbroke High School’s year 6 pupils. He would like to thank Andrew Bloom, along with the other Headteachers who took part in the meeting, and looks forward to visiting Stradbroke High School again soon.
