School pupils quiz their MP

PRIMARY school pupils at a Bognor Regis school quizzed the town’s MP about his role.

 

Nick Gibb, the MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, visited Nyewood Infant CofE School to meet its children and headteacher, Jacqueline Cobb.

 

He said: “After a tour of the school, I met members of the school council in Year 2 and spoke about working in Parliament, their favourite subjects and what they wanted to be when they grow up.

 

“I very much enjoyed visiting the infant school and having a look round at what the children are learning in their lessons.

 

“It was wonderful to speak to the children who were curious about my role as an MP and to learn about their ambitions.”

 

As well as representing Bognor Regis for the Conservatives in the House of Commons since 1997, Mr Gibb is the long-serving school standards minister in the government.

 

The school, in Brent Road, has been granted a ‘Good’ rating from Ofsted in all five categories which were inspected.

 

It also gained ‘Outstanding’ in its statutory inspection of Anglican and Methodist schools. It has 258 pupils.
