Wayland Academy Visit

As I have pledged on each of the four election nights on which I’ve been honoured to be elected, I will always do my best to represent EVERYONE in Mid Norfolk – not just the people who voted for me.

I take that pledge incredibly seriously, and that’s why I was delighted to continue my regular schedule of constituency school visits again with a recent visit to the brilliant Wayland Academy in Watton.

It was a pleasure to meet with Headteacher Glen Allott and his team again – learning more about the work they’ve done to improve the education of their pupils and congratulate them on their most recent Ofsted rating. It was also fantastic to meet members of the Breckland Youth Advisory Board and many other pupils, finding out more about their aspirations and how the school is supporting them as they look to access some of the incredible opportunities on offer in our county – especially in the science, innovation, research and technology sectors.

See more in my video below.

Rest assured, I will continue to do all I can to support our Mid Norfolk schools and teachers.
