Toby Perkins MP visited Spire Infant School to discuss plans for the development of their early years provision with Headteacher Fiona McCloughlin and governor Cllr Keith Miles.

Fiona McCloughlin explained the need to increase the community space at the site to include a hall and play areas for the children and to extend into the field space beyond the current perimeter.

Toby Perkins said ‘Spire Infant School has always been at the heart of the community and I am right behind plans to bring the community into the heart of the school.’

After a tour of the school Toby met the school council, made up of representatives from Key Stage 1.  The children told Toby about some of the decisions they had made and how they ensured the voices of all the children in their classes were included.  Toby said ‘Talking to 5 year olds about democracy is an interesting experience; it is a credit to the school how much of the concept they understood. There were some pretty good advocates in there; I hope they get their new facilities and help the school move from strength to strength’.
