SEND support in our local schools

How we take care of, and educate, some of our most vulnerable people is a measure of us as a society. EVERYONE has the right to a good education. 

That’s why, throughout my time as the MP for Mid Norfolk, I have paid particularly attention to SEND provision in our part of the world – both in mainstream education as well as in more specialised schools like Chapel Green School at Old Buckenham and Fred Nicholson School in Dereham.

I have consistently lobbied ministers and officials for greater funding for our rural schools. I also helped Chapel Green School move from their old, cramped, unfit for purpose site in Attleborough and into their brand new, state-of-the-art facility at Old Buckenham, and I am now supporting Jane Hayman and the wonderful team at Fred Nicholson School in Dereham as they look to find a long term solution to their deteriorating current site – whether that be a new school being built on the existing site or a move to a brand new, state-of-the-art facility of their own nearby.

Details on all this work can be found in the webstories below.
