Supporting Education

Everyone deserves a strong start to life

Jackie has championed successful campaigns for new free schools in Purfleet, Tilbury, Chafford & West Thurrock. 

“With Gateway primary built and open, planning permission granted for Harris Mayflower and a green light granted for a new secondary school, it is clear that any children across Thurrock have access to new schools giving parents more choice about where to send their children. But there is more to do. I will continue to support Headteachers who show vision and leadership for their schools and make sure that our academies receive the capital they need to give the best schools for our children.” 

"But let us also give credit to our teachers and headteachers who have shown leadership and delivered improved performance in our schools. They have moved a long way forward in the last five years and I will always support them.
