Dr Dan meets with young people at Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School in Framlingham

Dr Dan outside Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School in FramlinghamDan always enjoys meeting with Suffolk’s teachers, governors and young people. Last week, he visited Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School in Framlingham, where he met with Head Teacher Helen Picton and Chair of Governors Reverend Graham Owen, who together showed him around the school.

Dan spoke to a number of staff members and students during his tour of the school, before stopping to watch some of the reception pupils who were performing in the afternoon assembly. He also discussed the challenges facing the school with Head Teacher Helen Picton, and how any future local housing development is likely to affect school pupil admission numbers. The school was given a glowing Ofsted report in its most recent inspection, and has gone from strength to strength under Head Teacher Helen Picton’s leadership. The pupils were a real credit to their teachers, and Dan very much looks forward to visiting Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School as part of their Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the summer.
