MP Visit to the Academy
Daventry MP Chris Heaton-Harris met students and staff at DSLV, on Friday 28th April. Firstly, he met, Ellie-Marie, Paige, Brooke and Marks; representatives from the Primary School Council where he was asked questions on his role as an MP, including what he earns, and about how Parliament worked.
Chris then met the Head Girl and Head Boy, Kara Terry and Eshaveer Panesar, along with other students from Years 10 and 11 to answer questions on how he had helped the local community, changes in education policy that had affected the students, the impact of HS2 on Daventry, whether Theresa May was the right person to lead Britain through Brexit, and whether wind turbines were the best solution to stop climate change.
Chris finally met Principal, Simon Cotton, and Vice Principal, Adam Crawte, for lunch to discuss the improvements at DSLV and the academy's recent Good judgement from OFSTED. Chris was impressed by the students he met and looked forward to welcoming them down to Parliament later in the year.
