“Neath Abbey Infants School is a success story.” Said Peter following a visit to the school. Peter visited the school after it received a good school inspection report to congratulate them and meet the pupils. On the visit Peter was shown around the school and introduced to all the classes.
“The school has received a great inspection report and I have come to congratulate Mrs Beverly Newman, the rest of her team, the PTA, parents and children for their hard work. Neath is leading the way in providing top class education for its children.”
“Neath Abbey Infants is one of the oldest schools in Neath dating back to the early nineteenth century and has a tremendous history which is continuing.”
On the visit Peter was shown arts and crafts that the children were making including Mother’s Day cards. Following that he moved on to the next classroom where he joined in writing a poem about the colour black.
The Neath MP then moved onto the second site in Longford where he met nursery and reception classes. The reception class sang him a song in Welsh and in reception Peter met pupils who were busy making apple crumble and was told about sausage sandwiches which they made last week.
Following the visit Peter commented on the facilities in the school.
“I am proud to see that every class in this school has a much valued teaching assistant which makes the job so much easier for teachers. Many of whom are local people trained locally. Every classroom has a white board giving teachers high quality facilities to work with. All these things have been provided under this government.”
“The school certainly encapsulates its motto – ‘Happily Learn Together’.” Peter concluded
