Pupils of Weston and the Villages still ‘deserve better’ says MP

John Penrose MP has echoed calls from local headteachers who feel that the schools of Weston and the Villages need fairer funding if they are to maintain their excellent standards of education.

When asked by The Mercury for his thoughts on whether the pupils of North Somerset ‘deserve better’, John said: “Mercury readers will know that I’ve been campaigning for a fairer deal for Weston’s schools for years including taking petitions to Parliament and Downing Street itself.

“The new Pupil Premium has helped a lot but there’s still work to do. I won’t stop until we get the same deal as schools in Bristol or Birmingham.”
