Delivering an Outstanding Education for Every Child

As a parent, I know it's important to have great local schools to choose from, and how crucial education is to every child's development.  This is never truer than in today's fast-changing, high-tech world.

Every child should have access to an outstanding school place, to ensure that they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to take themselves anywhere that their talent and enthusiasm can lead them.  West Oxfordshire is lucky to have many outstanding schools - but there is more to do as we work together to expand education opportunities for all.

Since being elected as your MP, I have met over a third of West Oxfordshire schools and have had written contact with all headteachers about education issues.

I have also welcomed a number of local schools to Parliament to speak with them about the work of an MP and look forward to hosting many more.
