A wonderful week this week starting with a warm welcome at Elaine Primary Academy  in Strood on Monday.


Tuesday was a day of meetings at Gun Wharf, then on Wednesday I met with Education Leaders facilitated by the Medway Youth Trust. Lots of fantastic ideas exchanged on improving our education offer here in Medway.


Thursday saw the launch of super new initiative


This was held at Luton Junior School and was covered by the Kent Messenger and BBC South East TV. We are working with a brilliant charity Beanstalk on this initiative.

Thursday evening was our regular Medway Full Council evening which was full of interesting business but didn’t finish until after midnight.

A few hours sleep then I was up early this morning (Friday) ready for an interview on BBC Radio Kent being interviewed on the Get Medway Learning launch at 7.10am.

Then it was off to visit the Victory Academy in Chatham , where, after a meeting with the Executive Head 0f Chatham Grammar School for Boys Stuart Gardner, I was given a tour of Academy meeting many members of staff and of course pupils.


Back to Gun Wharf for a quick meeting then off up to the Fun Drum at Hempstead to join in the celebrations of the Darland Pre School who had recently been judged Outstanding by Ofsted under the new inspection framework.

It was great to meet the families and young children enjoying themselves. This event was covered by the Medway Messenger so looking forward to next weeks editions.


As I said at the start, it has been a wonderful week!
