Local MP Stephen Phillips last week paid a visit to Witham St Hughs Primary School, which is currently consulting on whether or not the school should become an Academy. As a supporter of the Government's Academies programme, which has been demonstrated to raise standards and deliver the best outcomes for children, Stephen was keen to see for himself the work that the school has been undertaking in connection with the consultation and its exciting plans for the future if the change goes ahead. Shown around by headteacher Neil Spencelayh, Stephen met with staff and pupils during their lessons and picked up a thing or two which he didn't know along the way. "Like so many schools across the constituency, Witham St Hughs is brilliantly led, delivering excellent results for all the children who come here," Stephen said. "I'm really pleased to see the governors consulting parents and the entire community on the direction that the school should take, and I look forward to hearing the outcome of the consultation exercise in due course."
Welcome, and thanks for visiting my website. This site was established whilst I was the Member of Parliament for Sleaford and North Hykeham. As Parliament is dissolved on 30 March 2015, there are no Members of Parliament from that date until after the general election on 7 May 2015. At present, I am once more the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Sleaford and North Hykeham! It's a great honour to have the responsibility of fighting for this beautiful part of Lincolnshire and I hope that my website will answer any questions you have. You'll find some information about me, about what I and my party stand for and about how to get in touch. Please don't hesitate to do so: what matters to you matters to me. I'm passionately committed to serving the interests of all of our community as best as I can.
