Lessons in democracy with a visit from MP
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.”
