Lessons in democ­racy with a visit from MP

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

PRI­MARY stu­dents were given a in­sight into the life of a Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment when David Rut­ley vis­ited their school for the day.

David Rut­ley, Mac­cles­field MP, was in­vited to Worth Academy to meet the stu­dents and teach­ers, and hear all about the work which has been go­ing on.

The academy, based in Poyn­ton, hosted an assem­bly where he talked about what it was like to be a mem­ber of par­lia­ment and the work he is do­ing in the con­stituency.

He was also given a tour of the school by head­teacher Peter Tay­lor, who has been at the school for 29 years and is thrilled with its progress, in­clud­ing its lat­est Of­sted re­port in which it was rated ‘out­stand­ing’.

Speak­ing af­ter the visit, Mr Rut­ley said: “I was very pleased to have the op­por­tu­nity to meet with Mr Tay­lor once again and find out about the im­por­tant work be­ing done at the school.

“It was great to meet with the pupils and speak to them, and also to dis­cover how en­gaged they were in cur­rent af­fairs and how peo­ple can con­trib­ute to our democ­racy.

“I look for­ward to keep­ing in touch with the school in the months ahead.”
