MP helps Pupil Parliament to top of the class


12th October 2020

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin joined the newly elected pupil parliament at its first meeting at a Malvern primary school.

Pupils at Northleigh Church of England Primary School selected seven representatives to attend the school parliament and Harriett was invited to announce the school’s new ‘Prime Minister’ and ‘deputy Prime Minister.

Harriett was also given a tour of the school and chatted to headteacher Sarah Green about the challenges of working within Covid guidelines to protect the health and safety of pupils and staff.

The school was taken over by the Mercian Educational Trust just before lockdown and installed Sarah to run the school throughout the lockdown period and into a new school year.

Harriett said: “This was my first primary school visit since lockdown and it was brilliant to see happy young people back in the school with a new way of operating.

“I have had many conversations with teachers and parents to help children back into school but it is great to see this first hand and it is reassuring to see how normal everything feels.

“These are clearly challenging times, but the I was keen to chat to Sarah about how the school is coping. Staff and pupils seem to have done a great job adapting.

“I was honoured to be invited to see their own parliament in action and it is working on some exciting challenges to help improve their own school over the coming year.”

Headteacher Sarah Green added: “We were delighted to safely welcome Harriett into school to see democracy in action within our school. Our pupils were keen to discuss with her topics including the representation of women in parliament, and environmental challenges post Covid 19."
