A headteacher was pleased to welcome MP Lucy Frazer on her first school visit since the latest easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures.
The SE Cambs MP visited Robert Arkenstall Primary School in Haddenham to find out how it has adapted to remote learning during the pandemic and its recovery from lockdown.
Ms Frazer also heard the school’s reaction after schools in Fenland and east Cambridgeshire will share over £1.15 million following her joint campaign to ensure the areas fell in the Department for Education’s (DfE) Opportunity Area programme.
Headteacher Kate Bonney said: “It was good to tell her about our successes and ensure she understands the impact of the difficulties which school communities have faced during this period.”
“We discussed how we are using the DfE catch-up fund to support children with the National Tutoring Programme in school, and work within school on social and emotional wellbeing after a challenging period.”
