Pupils challenge MP on hot topics

Pupils grilled Barrow and Furness MP Simon Fell on hot topics when he visited two of our Trust schools during Parliament Week.

At Chetwynde School questions range from thorny issues such as the rise of inflation and cost of living to Brexit and Trident – alongside finding out his favourite biscuit!

Meanwhile at Ormsgill Primary School the newly-elected school parliament members challenged him on increasing pay for teachers and NHS workers as well as improving the shops in Barrow town centre and launching a campaign for playground improvements at Barrow Park.

A big thank you to Simon for visiting to help the children understand more about democracy, the role of an MP and provoking ideas from young people who are the future leaders of our community.
