Secretary of State for Education Visits United Learning academies to celebrate World Book Day and United Teaching

Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP, Secretary of State for Education visited two United Learning academies today – Wilberforce Primary and Paddington Academy – to meet pupils and staff and celebrate World Book Day.

At Wilberforce Primary he met pupils from Reception to Yr 6 all of whom were enjoying their reading and many of whom had come dressed for World Book Day, despite the wintery weather.

Claire Macfie, Headteacher of the school said:

“Our pupils were particularly pleased to welcome the Secretary of State today because it gave them a chance to talk to him about their favourite books and for him to see the older pupils reading with the younger ones. Reading is taken very seriously at Wilberforce Primary and is something that our pupils really enjoy. The Minister was interested in what our pupils’ favourite books were and, I hope, was impressed by the range and diversity of the books they had chosen.

“We are a small, close-knit school at Wilberforce and it was a privilege to welcome someone so important. I know that our pupils felt very honoured that he had chosen to share World Book Day with us”.
