Oliver Dowden paid a visit to Wroxham Primary School in Potters Bar last Friday.

The visit consisted of a full tour of the school, sitting in on lessons, and a meeting with the senior staff.

It was the first time recently appointed headteacher Roger Billing had met the MP and the pair discussed how the school could potentially take on more children in the future due to Hertsmere significantly developing over the coming years, with a number of houses planned for the area.

Mr Billing said: “We felt that it was important to show an interest in being involved with the future conversations about increased educational provision for the area.”

Mr Dowden said: “It was a pleasure to come and see Wroxham School.

“I was very impressed by the school’s facilities and the wonderful ethos they have when teaching.”
