Arbourthorne welcomes Schools Minister

Thursday, March 29, 2007

On a recent visit to Arbourthorne Community Primary, Schools Minister Jim Knight MP with local MP Meg Munn observed the continuing investment in education in Sheffield at its best. The Minister was given a tour of the new building before meeting with pupils and the school council.


Local MP Meg Munn said of the visit:


I invited the Minister to visit Arbourthorne Community Primary and Woodthorpe Primary in the constituency, partly to discuss with him aspects of the Ofsted inspection process. I was keen for the Minister to see the outstanding work being done in these schools, and to show that there is more to schools than just the raw data - important though that is. We also wanted to show the Minister that as well as improving the outcomes in SATs etc, these schools provide children with an all round education.


Arbourthorne Community Primary lies in the heart of a transforming but challenging community with high levels of deprivation. It is doing some excellent work and has great leadership and dedicated staff - their work is having enormous benefits for local community. I thought the visit was successful and I know the school enjoyed welcoming him to the school.’


Headteacher Sheila Haigh remarked:


‘It's so important that people who work in challenging circumstances are recognised for succeeding against the odds. I am always pleased to receive visitors in our very special learning community. It's lovely to step back and see the school through the eyes of a visitor. We really appreciate the hours Meg dedicates on behalf of our schools and Jim Knight's visit was very important to us. There was active listening and that's what our staff, children and families deserve.’
