Robert Largan MP visited Whaley Bridge Primary School on Roald Dahl Day last week, to meet with school staff and take questions from pupils.
As part of their topic on British values, Year 6 students have been learning about democracy and were able to put their questions about the British political system to their local Member of Parliament.
The Q&A session included questions on a range of topics, from the recent crisis in Afghanistan to whether Robert has shaken the Prime Minister’s hand.
Robert was also given a tour of the school’s facilities and outdoor spaces, which are currently being upgraded. This includes the Enhanced Resource Centre, which provides support for children with Special Educational Needs.
Robert Largan, MP for the High Peak, commented:
“It was lovely to visit Whaley Bridge Primary School and to do a Q&A with the Year 6 class, who have been learning about democracy.
“The costumes for Roald Dahl Day were all fantastic and the children were clearly having a great time!
“I would also like to pay tribute to the staff at Whaley Bridge Primary School.
“The school is a vital part of our community, as demonstrated by its role as a hub for donations during the Toddbrook Reservoir incident and the hard work of teachers to provide a caring learning environment for their students on a daily basis.”
