The students had the chance to ask their local MP a variety of questions about her political career and the work she is doing locally and in Government. They also discussed the importance of education, and the experience of starting at a new school.
This Liberal Democrats in Government have introduced measures like the ‘Pupil Premium’ to help schools. The £2.5 billion fund puts more money in schools, targeted at pupils who need the most help. This fund has given Haringey schools an extra £13.1 million this year.
At the end of the visit, the children presented the Lib Dem MP with a gift to thank her for coming.
After the visit, Lynne Featherstone MP commented:
“It was a pleasure to visit Woodside High and see how the new intake of children are getting on.
“I always enjoy visiting local schools in my constituency. It was great to see how engaged the children were with politics and how well they are settling into such a wonderful school.”
