Pupils at Fairstead Community Primary School  put their questions to North West Norfolk MP James Wild when he visited the school on Tuesday.

Mr Wild was given a tour of the school and met with the school council to discuss the importance of leadership and the qualities needed to make positive change.

Year Six pupils had the opportunity to take part in a Question Time experience with Mr Wild and impressed him with their well thought out questions about his work in Westminster and their passion for a new or improved hospital for the town.

Headteacher Daniel Farthing said: “The children gave him a tour of the school so they could show the improvements we have made and what we have been able to do since the pandemic.

“He spoke to a Year Six class and they questioned him on being an MP and his views on Brexit. We are very proud of our school which is an integral part of the community.” 

Mr Wild said: “I was delighted to visit Fairstead and have opportunity to answer some of the pupils’ questions. Education is so important for improving life chances, and it was great to see the positive impact the links that the school have with the community are making.”
