I strongly believe that our children and young people are an integral part of our society, and we have a duty of care to them in creating a safe environment here in south Buckinghamshire where children can grow and learn in a supportive community.
South Buckinghamshire has a proud history of academic excellence at both a primary and secondary level, and I am delighted to have been able to partner with our local schools to determine how to best elevate the progress of our students alongside our incredible body of teaching staff. I am campaigning to expand nonselective secondary school provision in this constituency to ensure that every child receives the education that they deserve and to decrease pressure on our current educational establishments.
It is vital that schools receive the resources they need to care for our young people and provide for them the best education that they can. I am thrilled to have already been able to secure Government funding for our local schools including Condition Improvement Funding for Wooburn Green Primary School, Great Marlow School, Burnham Grammar School, and St Nicholas’ CofE School.
It is my privilege to meet regularly with teachers, students, and their families as I work to champion the achievements and the needs of our local schools. I am eager to support the teaching and wellbeing of our students and I will continue to ensure that our schools are in the best place for them to develop as young people and engage with the local community in south Buckinghamshire.
