An important conversation last week with our school leaders in Leeds, myself and our Shadow Schools Minister, Wes Streeting.
We usually meet in the last week of each term, but we brought this meeting urgently forward in response to the last-minute government announcements about schools closing.
All school staff in Leeds West are working extremely hard in very difficult circumstances, with the best interests of our children at heart.
I’d like to thank them for everything they do. I’m currently home schooling my two young children – needless to say that my respect for teachers continues to grow every single day!
