Today our school council welcomed Jarrow MP Kate Osborne to Valley View.
Ms Osborne enjoyed a tour of the school before entering into a challenging question and answer session with the School Council.
The children did lots of research to prepare for the meeting. They asked about the Women and Equalities Committee, what they could do about climate change, how they could get more money for fun equipment in school and if Kate Osborne MP had ever met Boris Johnson !
The Student Council made a great impression Kate Osborne commended them all praising the excellent selection process the school used to elect school councillors.
We look forward to another meeting soon!

It was a great visit, our school council were amazing ambassadors for our schools.
Thank you so much to the Town Hall staff, Deputy Mayor and Councillors who made us feel so welcome.
