COVENTRY North West MP Taiwo Owatemi paid a visit to Hearsall Community Academy to meet with staff and check out the new Ladybirds nursery there.
Ms Owatemi spoke to headteacher Claire Jones and Lois Whitehouse, CEO of the Inspire Education Trust.
She sad: “It was really great to welcome a local MP into our school and to share with her all the wonderful things we have achieved, not only during the pandemic but the hard work both our staff and children put in on a daily basis, and how we have adapted our processes to enable us to continue to support the local community during this time”.
Ms Owatemi also spoke to year six children about their learning, including about The Blitz which helped pupils understand what life was like growing up during the war.
Ms Jones explained the child-centred learning and community cohesion were a key strength of the school and their work, alongside an inspiring curriculum involved in developing relationships.
Community schemes, such as pensioners lunches, family learning, Pass the Smile charity and the school’s work on Challenge Awards were also discussed.
The accolades are designed to give every pupil childhood experiences outside school including wellbeing, nature and getting active.
Ms Owatemi and the children shared their hopes and aspirations for Coventry including green spaces, places to play and sustainability.
