Education in Witham

6th November 2017

Local MP, Priti Patel, met with Mrs Sue Baldwin, Regional Schools Commissioner for the East of England, to discuss pupil attainment and to raise standards further education in Witham.

After the meeting Priti commented:

“Since being elected in 2010, I have campaigned to put Witham's pupils and parents first and improve education outcomes for every child. Parents will agree that a decent education is fundamental for every child, regardless of ability, to achieve their full potential and lead a life enriched with opportunity.

“I had a constructive meeting with Sue to discuss recent cases which show that improvements can be made. We have seen great examples of teaching and leadership in schools across the constituency, and I am working with the Commissioner to ensure that high standards are being maintained throughout and no child is left behind.

“As your elected representative, I am calling on parents to contact me with any issue, big or small. I will then raise this with the appropriate body and secure a swift resolution.”
