Last night, Simon Clarke MP was delighted to invite the new Education Secretary, Damian Hinds, to meet local headteachers at Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough.
This was one of the Cabinet Minister's first visits after his appointment last month. It was great to discuss topics including how to attract more good teachers to the North East, teacher workload and children’s mental health. Simon sees that we have got some fantastic local heads, and everyone enjoyed the discussion.
Linda Halbert, the CEO of the Teesside Learning Trust which includes Badger Hill Primary School, Whitecliffe Academy and Freebrough Academy said, “We’re passionate about making sure every child on Teesside gets the best possible start in life. It was great to have the new Education Secretary in the room to discuss how we raise attainment and we’re delighted Simon asked him to come to Guisborough.”
