Sharing Freebrough’s views in Parliament
Last week, Mrs Douglas, who is a Pastoral Leader at Freebrough Academy and a UK Parliament Teacher Ambassador, had the honour of being one of only 10 education professionals in the country who were chosen to meet the Education Select Committee in Parliament.
Mrs Douglas explained: “At the meeting, I shared our student’s and staff’s views on mental health and wellbeing, changes to the curriculum, teacher recruitment, and alternative provision.”
“The meeting was made up of both Labour and Conservative MPs who have a particular interest in education, and following some of the issues that we raised, the Chair is going to start an inquiry. It was very exciting, and rather nerve wracking, but it was great that our issues were taken so seriously by those in power.”
