Dr Dan meets with staff and pupils at Whitton Community Primary School

Dr Dan with Whitton Community Primary School Headteacher Richard Dedicoat during his recent visit and tour.Dan regularly takes time out of his busy local schedule to meet with young people in Ipswich and Suffolk. It was a real pleasure for him to visit Whitton Community Primary School last week. He spoke with Headteacher Richard Dedicoat about the importance of giving young people the best possible start in life, before being given a tour of the school, which received a ‘good’ rating in its most recent Ofsted inspection report.
