On 16 May I had a great time visiting Churchill Gardens School, a Primary Academy in Westminster. I spoke with pupils and their parents, who told me their concerns regarding the education their children are receiving. The people I met spoke with incredible fondness for the amazing job their school’s teachers do in helping their children. However, many were also very worried about the cuts they had heard about. A number of parents I spoke to said that life under the Tory government had become increasingly difficult and that the impending cuts were only going to make things worse. We talked about ways that an engaged MP could stand up for local people’s interests.
