Prime Minister Meets Teddy

« Back to News

Along with Year 6 pupils, St Edward’s school dog Teddy was very excited when he met Prime Minister Theresa May whilst she was visiting the new Barratt’s Housing Development – Upton Gardens, being built on the site of the old West Ham United Football Ground in Upton Park, Newham.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, shook hands and spoke at length to Year 6 pupils and staff of St Edward’s Catholic Primary School and was very surprised to hear how Teddy , the school dog, worked with the children to help build their confidence and have a calming effect on behaviour. She was impressed that St Edward’s school dog was making such a positive impact on children’s experiences at school.  Teddy was excited to get such a warm welcome from the PM and appreciated being petted and having his picture taken with Mrs May.

Mrs May’s Instagram page reads “Theresa May meets Teddy, one very proud ambassador (wearing his very own tie of course) of St Edward’s School in Upton Park, whose pupils and staff I bumped into whilst out visiting the nearby Upton Gardens housing development this afternoon.”
