Year 5 and 6 were lucky enough to be visited by the local MP for Gateshead Ian Mearns on Friday. He has been the MP for Gateshead for the past 13 years and has served as a local Councillor for the Saltwell area for over 40 years. Ian shared with the children some of the work that he had done around education for the local area and his passion for serving for ‘the patch’ that he lives in. The children were all extremely well-behaved and interested and asked some probing questions to discover what being an MP entails.
Article 28: We all have the right to a good quality of education.
