Dr Dan meets with young people at Debenham High School

Dr Dan with Headteacher Julia Upton during his recent visit to Debenham High School.Since Dan was elected as your MP for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, he has visited most of the schools in his constituency and always enjoys meeting with teachers, governors and pupils. We all share the view that giving young people the best possible start in life is vital for their personal development and essential for our future economy and society, both locally and nationally. During his regular school visits, Dan sees at firsthand the enthusiasm to learn that our young people show and is always full of admiration for our hardworking teachers and staff, who are prepared to go the extra mile to inspire children to succeed.

Last week, Dan visited Debenham High School, where he met with Headteacher Julia Upton before holding a Question and Answer session with the year 11 students. Debenham High School is one of the highest performing schools in Suffolk, and in January 2011 became an academy, which provides it with greater financial independence and flexibility regarding its curriculum.

During his session with the students, Dan spoke about a number of topics, including his work as a medical doctor, constituency MP and Government Health Minister. The students were a real credit to Julia and her staff, and Dan was impressed with their enthusiasm and knowledge. He would again like to thank Julia for inviting him to Debenham High School, and looks forward to visiting again soon.

I know she...
