Andrea Hosts Education Networking Event with Education Secretary and Local Teachers

I was extremely proud to host some education leaders from local schools and the Secretary of State for Education. Gavin Williamson, in my office for a networking event that was extremely useful for both sides.

While the schools gave feedback of what can be improved, the Secretary of State was pleased to announced some changes in policies that will improve the system - the end of Ofsted inspections' exemptions for outstanding schools - and new funding for our local pupils.

It was a productive event and I was pleased to be able to facilitate a productive discussion to ensure our fantastic local educators are heard at the very top of the education system.
