Luke Pollard, MP for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, came into school on Friday morning to speak with parents, Governors and staff about the school’s post-Ofsted action plan and plans for Plymouth School of Creative Arts to join Reach South Academy Trust.
Luke said: “It was good to hear a range of opinions from parents and staff today. This school is special and has some features that need protecting and enhancing but also there are challenges that need to be addressed. There are a lot of parents and children that feel uncertain at the moment and I’m happy doing everything I can to support the school during this transition.”
One parent said: “I feel that this was a really positive meeting.”
Parent Claire Courtney said: “This is a school about creative thinkers. I am here and my children are here because I believe in the ethos, which supports a learning mindset focusing on lateral thought and divergent thinking.”
Governor Jeff Stratton said: “It was great to hear parent voice. The parents were very clear and articulate”.
We are really pleased that our local MP came into school today to be part of the conversation.
