Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg was at a meeting at the Evelina Hospital this morning.

Staff and pupils of the school arrived to find the end of the atrium patrolled by security.

Nick Clegg was here talking to heads of departments.

To the disappointment of secondary pupils, he did not visit the school.

    Maybe we should invite him to the classroom ROH, so we can interview him.
    Or is there another politician you’d like to invite?

    Dear students, As headteacher, I am generally informed when the atrium is used for other functions as the functions could be disruptive to our lessons. I was informed a VIP would be visiting – (VIP is short for: Very Important Person and this is how visitors who require higher level of security when they visit the hospital are called) – however, I did not know who it would be. I did ask whether the visitor would be visiting the school, and was told the meeting was just with Heads of Medical Departments. I agree with you entirely that it is a GREAT, GREAT pity that the Deputy Prime Minister was not offered a 5 minutes opportunity to visit our school.

    Perhaps we should write him a letter saying how important we think hospital education is and that we hope the government ensures it continues to be appropriately funded in future years to come? I would love to see your letters in this respect.

      That’s an excellent idea. Though maybe we should invite him first, or Simon Hughes who has visited us before, and is a member of the same party, and ask him those questions in person?

    That would be great if the Deputy Prime Minister came to visit the school because kids would be able to see him and ask him questions about the House Of Parliament and how they rule the country.
