Supporting education in Wiltshire

In 2015 I pledged to visit every school in the constituency within the first two years of my term in Parliament. I have achieved this and I have used the visits to better understand the unique pressures on each school, engage young people in democracy and explain to them the work of a Member of Parliament.

I have fought hard to bring fairer funding to schools in our communities so I am pleased that Theresa May has stated there will be an overall increase in the schools budget by £4bn and also offering forgiveness on student loan repayments for new teachers to help them remain in the profession.
