I attended an assembly at Roundthorn Primary Community School in Oldham recently to introduce myself to the children as their local MP and answer their questions about representing Oldham.
My talk to pupils aged between 5 and 11 years old followed a trip by members of Roundthorn Primary’s school council to Parliament in March this year.
I was delighted to visit Roundthorn Primary school and talk to the pupils about their interests and how the work I do as an MP, representing Oldham in Parliament, affects them. They asked me about a wide range of topics from What I do as a MP to why politics is important. It’s extremely important to me to listen to the views of all my constituents and I really enjoy my regular visits to schools in the constituency.
