A TORY MP was given a grilling by Sytchampton youngsters when he paid a visit to their school.

Nigel Huddleston was the special guest at Sytchampton Primary School’s celebration assembly to reward children for their good work.

He and his assistant Julia Luff was taken on a tour of the school and spoke to pupils, staff and parents who had attended.

Mr Huddleston, who represents Mid-Worcestershire, also congratulated the school’s ‘Golden Ticket’ winners, who were chosen to enjoy a tea party with head teacher Sharon Williams as a reward for their hard work, good behaviour or kindness shown around the school.

And he also faced the School Council during a Q&A session which covered topics including how Brexit will affect children in the future, whether funding for small schools is fair, how often he met Theresa May, whether he would be going to the Royal wedding and why he became an MP.

Mr Huddleston said: “It was such a great pleasure for me to visit Sytchampton Primary School, and a privilege to be a guest at the celebration assembly.

“I particularly enjoyed taking such a wide range of intelligent questions from the students in the School Council, and they are a great credit to the school and the teachers. I look forward to my next visit.”
