MP meets namesake at a WNAT school

It was back to the classroom for MP James Wild when he took a seat alongside pupils at one of our primary schools

The visit to West Lynn enabled Mr Wild, who represents North West Norfolk, to spend time with the school’s junior leadership team, who had plenty of questions for him - and he had the chance to meet his namesake in Year 6.

“James explained that over the next year he was aiming to visit all the primary schools in the area because education was imperative for the future generation,” said headteacher Jo Borley. 

“We are proud of our school and welcome visits. James visited each class where the children quizzed him about his role, what it’s like to be an MP and if has met any famous people.”

The children also ‘interrogated’ him on how he could support the school and how a trip to the Houses of Parliament could be organised.

“There is no substitute to visiting schools to talk to pupils and staff to help improve educational opportunities in West Norfolk. It was great to spend time at West Lynn Primary where the children were very inquisitive in the junior leadership Q&A session about my role as MP and reflecting on their role in school,” said the MP.

“I was also impressed by the broad learning approach, making sure each child has a well-rounded education to help fulfil their potential,” he added.

The Junior Leadership Team helps improve the school from the perspective of a child. Members give feedback to teachers and make recommendations which the school implements if possible.
