Orchards 3

I recently visited Orchards C of E primary school in Wisbech to speak with members of its student council. After explaining a little bit about my role as a MP, I was then quizzed by the pupils who asked a number of excellent questions on a wide range of topics.

We discussed the importance of fairer funding for schools which remains a key priority, as well as topics like Wisbech Rail and better play facilities. A new national funding formula will be introduced in 2017/18 financial year based on need which will help schools like Orchards in particular, and this will build on the new facilities they have recently opened helping the school to thrive.

We also chatted about the importance of reading as part of the Wisbech Reads initiative, and discussed our favourite books.
