More money for all local schools

The Conservatives have committed to increase funding for all pupils in all schools.

As a former teacher and the son of two state teachers, education is one of my central priorities. We have 46 local schools in the constituency and, since the 2017 General Election, I have been in touch with all of them and visited all bar three.

Having listened to headteachers I have campaigned in Westminster for more funding for every pupil and I am delighted that the new Prime Minister has agreed and promised to put additional money into every school. I know this will help our excellent local schools and teachers deliver even better opportunities for the next generation.

Fifty Year Old Infants

Ingatestone Infant School celebrated its fiftieth anniversary this year and, in my mission to visit every school in Brentwood and Ongar, I decided it was time I went to say hello to the headteacher, Shelagh Harvey, staff and pupils.

Investing in Our Schools
