Schools Minister visits Woodthorpe Primary

Thursday, March 29, 2007

Woodthorpe Primary recently welcomed the Schools Minister Jim Knight MP, accompanied by local MP Meg Munn. The Minister was given a tour of the new building and joined in with part of a Year 6 maths lesson where the children were celebrating their progress this term. He also met the School Council where they discussed a range of issues from the school building to bullying.


Local MP Meg Munn said of the visit:


I invited the Minister to visit Woodthorpe Primary and Arbourthorne Community 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. Woodthorpe Primary operates in the heart of a community with high levels of deprivation; despite this the school does excellent work. I thought the visit was successful, and I know the school enjoyed his visit.’


Headteacher Chris Tew remarked:


‘I was delighted that the Minister took time out of his busy schedule to visit the school. He was responsive to the issues raised by the school regarding areas of priority for school improvement, and was particularly interested in the positive partnership work we are dong with our parents and carers. He discussed the need to provide a nurturing environment for some individual children where engagement and vulnerability to exclusion both inside and outside school are an issue. I hope he enjoyed his visit as much as we did.’
