Creswick Primary School invited Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps to visit lessons and meet the members of their Pupil Parliament.

Grant met with Mr Lock, the Interim Headteacher of Creswick, and other members of staff for a tour around the school.

Mr Lock introduced Grant to different lessons and age groups wherein he met pupils working on a range of subjects from math to English, to lessons in which the pupils were honing their research skills on computers. He even met a teacher who taught his children when they attended the school in the past.

Grant said

“The work ethic of the children at Creswick is brilliant and the engagement that they get from the teachers is fantastic”.

Members of the school’s Pupil Parliament also had time to sit down with Grant and ask him a range of questions about his role as an MP and his time as Defence Secretary.

Grant thanked the Pupil Parliament for sitting down with him:

“The Creswick Pupil Parliament asked such brilliant questions, many of which I have never been asked before, and showed a lot of interest in how our democracy works.”

Mr Lock thanked Grant for visiting:

“Having the opportunity for Mr Shapps to attend the school was a great experience for all of our pupils. They asked lots of intriguing questions and are so keen to help make a positive contribution to our school.”
