Securing our children’s education is very important to me; since my election in 2010 I have visited and worked with schools across our town and I am pleased that there are now 29% more schools rated Good or Outstanding in Northampton North compared to before I was elected in 2010.
I am also pleased to support the Conservative Government’s decision to pilot the Early Years Pupil Premium in Northampton. This scheme will allocate additional funding each year to ensure that our young children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, get the best start in life.
I will continue to visit schools across my constituency to talk to parents, pupils and teachers about their schools and I will work hard to keep standards rising across Northampton North.
