South West Norfolk MP ‘impressed’ after visit to primary schools
South West Norfolk MP Liz Truss was given an insight into what children at two primary schools have been learning about last week.
Ms Truss visited both Runcton Holme and Wormegay Church of England Primary Schools, which form the Holy Cross Federation, on Friday to find out more about the way in which the curriculum has been developed.
Ms Truss, who is also Trade Secretary, said: “It was great to visit Runcton Holme and Wormegay Primary Schools, chat to staff about their current and future plans for the schools, but also meet some of the pupils.
“It was a very enjoyable morning and I look forward to visiting again in the future.”
In a Twitter post, Ms Truss said they spoke about reducing food waste and eating local produce.
“Very impressed by number of children able to make their own meals,” she added.
Headteacher Emma Zeil said: “It was a pleasure to welcome and be able to share with Ms Truss the learning the children have been doing over the past term from the new curriculum the staff are developing based around the Global Goals.
“We aim to ensure our children are prepared for life as they grow up in a changing world, and are working towards a sustainable future.”
The schools are sponsored by the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT), whose chief executive officer Adrian Ball said: “Rural schools play an important role in their communities by continuing the legacy of education provision in these isolated areas.
“Runcton Holme and Wormegay play a vital part in their respective communities as well as working together as part of the Holy Cross Federation and as part of DEMAT.
“It was a pleasure to be able to share with Ms Truss the successes and challenges experienced in these schools and the plans for their continued success.”
