A head teacher from a Colwick primary school has been selected to attend the tenth annual Teachers’ Institute in the Houses of Parliament.

In the ten years since it was launched, Teachers’ Institute has trained more than 500 teachers, from all parts of the UK, in the role, work and history of Parliament.

Vernon Coaker, MP for Gedling, said: “I am delighted that Chris Belton, a teacher from my constituency, is attending Parliament’s Teachers’ Institute.

“Teachers have so many opportunities to engage young people with their Parliament and I am sure that the students in St John the Baptist Primary in Colwick will benefit from Chris’s experience.”
