Today, I visited the school council and Key Stage 2 students of Ysgol Pen Coch to talk about the work of an MP.
Ysgol Pen Coch, in Flint, is a maintained special school. Their school provision meets the needs of learners with complex layered needs. This includes learners with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Severe Learning Difficulties, Moderate Learning Difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Communication Disorders, Sensory Needs, Physical Needs, and/or Social, Emotional Mental Health Needs.
They specialise in Therapeutic Intervention as well as providing an excellent learning environment for the children. The school was opened in 2009 and is packed with specialist equipment.
I answered questions from the children which included “Have you met the Queen?”, “What’s Parliament like to work in?” and “How do you get to London?”
This is a marvellous school that gives the children all they need and more to have the best care and education. Today was an utter delight to meet with the students of Key Stage 2 and the schools council. They asked some excellent questions and were really interested in how parliament works.
I was able to share with them the exceptional handouts that our provided by parliament and talk about what my job is and how I help our local community.
I hope to return to Ysgol Pen Coch soon. The teachers and teaching assistants are a shining example of how brilliant education is provided and the children really enjoyed the day.
