Last term, Year 5 & 6 children in Elm Class wrote letters to our local MP, Sir John Hayes, to express their concerns and offer solutions to a range of issues that affect us all. These included concerns about plastic pollution, deforestation, Brexit, meat production, animal welfare, gun crime and road safety. The children were delighted to receive replies from Sir John who thanked them for their well written letters and gave detailed responses of how these issues were currently being addressed by the government. One of the letters, which was about the speed that cars travel on the roads near school, was forwarded to the local police chief and led to a visit from a road safety office in school. As a direct result of this the police are now collecting data of car speeds near Weston Hills School to help them improve road safety in our community. We are very proud that we have pupils who not only care about their world and the community they live in, but are willing to take action to improve things.
