Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP, Boris Johnson recently met with staff and students at Field End Infant School in Ruislip as they prepared to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Boris was welcomed by Headteacher Dorothy Chappell, and Assistant Headteacher Victoria Jarvis. After meeting with teachers participating in the National Tutoring Programme, he was then taken on a tour where he attended classes and spoke with students.
Speaking after the visit, Boris Johnson said: “I recognise that the last two years have been very challenging for school children across the UK. The Government is taking action to make up for lost time in the classroom with the National Tutoring Programme, which aims to deliver up to two million courses this year, and up to 90 million tuition hours by the 2024/5 academic year. I was delighted to hear how the teachers at Field End Infant School have seen such positive improvements in the confidence and self-esteem of pupils taking part”.
