West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper was met with pupils, parents, staff and governors at Mossy Lea Primary School in Wrightington.   

The Governors were keen to show to MP Rosie the fantastic progress the school has made and its plans for continued growth in the future.   

Rosie was delighted to meet with the children who were full of questions for her, including how long she has been an MP and if she knew anyone famous!   

West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper commented
“Mossy Lea is a beautiful ‘small school’ at the heart of the local village community, it was a pleasure to meet with all the children and talk to them about my role as an MP.   

“I had a detailed discussion with the entire governing body and headteacher, with the local education authority present, who confirmed to me that they can see real progress, stable leadership and a personalised and unique quality of education.   

“With the experienced and committed governing body including the fantastic parent governors, and headteacher Mr Pearson, it was clear to me just how strong this school is despite being smaller than others.”  

Headteacher Mr Iain Pearson, who took on the headship earlier this year, said:
“Things are looking good, the children are happy and the education and attainment is of a high standard.   

“We’re engaging with the local community and just recently held a joint sports day with our colleagues at Pingawings!   

“Welcoming Rosie Cooper to our school, it was nice to be recognised by the MP for all the hard work done here by the staff, governors and importantly the wonderful pupils who make this school what it is.”  

Parent governors Ryan Elms and Les Burrows spoke highly of the impact recent additions such as Mr Pearson and Chair of Governors Andy Purcell have had. Ryan said:
“We love this school, this is our family and our village school and the environment here is why I send my kids here.” Les added: “Everyone here just clubs together to make this school work well and we all do it for the kids.”  

Chair of Governors Andy Purcell, who broke the school skipping rope record in front of Rosie, with a total of 37 jumps, said:
“Everyone here is working so hard to deliver a first class education and learning experience to the children and with the incredible support from Lancashire County Council the school is thriving and we look forward to the future with great optimism for Mossy Lea.”   

Wrightington Mossy Lea Primary School is a delightful community primary school in Wrightington, Lancashire, for children aged 4-11 years.  

Ofsted has recently recognised the school’s strengths as: 

  • Pupils’ behaviour is good and they say that they are happy and feel safe in school.  
  • The school provides effective support for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. 

The PTFA have organised a Christmas Bingo/Fair evening on 7th December. The doors open at 5.30 and eyes down is at 6.30pm
