Wishing two primary schools a Happy Easter

I visited Bishop Alexander and Muskham Primary Schools on the last day of term to meet staff and pupils and had the opportunity to wish them all a peaceful Easter break.
Both schools are doing well and have made big improvements in the last few years. Bishop Alexander has recently been rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and I enjoyed spending time with the Deputy Head Mr Ward. Muskham has returned to being an excellent village school after a brief dip, thanks to the hard work of the headteacher, staff and governors. I’m pleased to say that standard of primary education throughout my constituency – whether in Newark or the villages – is now very high.
At Bishop Alexander pupils pitched plans they had developed for community projects such as a weekend sports and social club and a young angling club. At Muskham I was able to present Oliver in Year 2 with a prize for best drawing in a county wide competition organised by Frost nurseries near East Bridgford and Mrs Ann Frost of the longstanding family nursery has generously given the school £500 worth of plants and trees – so look out for a new garden at the rear of the school.
I hope all children in Newark enjoy the holidays.
