Lane End Primary School is the latest school in the Cheadle constituency to receive a visit from local MP Mark Hunter. Mr Hunter was shown around Lane End Primary School by Head-Teacher Mr James Twigg, and during the visit not only had the opportunity to meet pupils and teachers, but also had the chance to see for himself the good work and achievements of the school.

The visit came after an excellent OFSTED report for the school, which graded Lane End Primary School as outstanding in all areas (overall effectiveness; effectiveness of the foundation stage; achievement and standards; personal development and well-being; quality of provision; curriculum and other activities; care, guidance and support; as well as for leadership and management).

Speaking after the visit Mr Hunter said: "I was delighted to be able to visit Lane End Primary School. One of the best parts of my job is visiting schools in the local area, and I particularly enjoyed this visit as it gave me the opportunity to meet the students and teachers in their classrooms hard at work in their first week back after the Christmas break.

This visit was especially well timed because of the school's recent first rate OFSTED report which graded the school as outstanding in all areas. This was an exceptional result - and one which the head-teacher, all of the staff, students and parents should be very proud of. It really was a pleasure to visit such an excellent school and to meet all of the people that make it possible for the school to be so successful. Education of our young people is so important and it is inspiring to see a school who have achieved so much."
