Rayleigh and Wickford MP Mark Francois congratulated newly elected members of the School Council when he paid a recent visit to Glebe Primary School in Rayleigh.
The Councillors were elected by their classmates to represent them to the Headteacher, Mrs Nicola Bache and her staff and to provide input from the pupils on how the school should best be run. Whilst on his visit, Mark handed out badges to the newly elected School Councillors and also answered a number of questions from them on his role and duties as the local Member of Parliament.
During his visit to Glebe Primary School, which was formed by the recent merger of Glebe Infants and Glebe Juniors, Mark was impressed by the school’s “Good” rating from Ofsted and also by the smart turnout and polite behaviour of the pupils.
Commenting on his visit to Glebe Primary School, Mark said:
“I was delighted to congratulate the new School Councillors on their election and to wish them all the best in representing their classmates in the future. Glebe Primary School has a very positive feel about it and is clearly a school on the up. I also witnessed their “Signing Choir” in action, including some of the pupils from their Special Unit for Hearing Impaired Children. Overall, I was very impressed during the visit and I look forward to remaining in touch with Glebe Primary School in the future.”
