IN THE Hotseat next week will be Goddard Park Primary School headteacher Mike Welsh.

Mike, who is the former president of the National Association of Headteachers, will be answering all education-related questions from our readers next week.

Most recently, Mike was in the news discussing the Government's announcement that all schools must provide a hot meal for all pupils in Years 1 and 2 by September. 

Mike, whose school was recently given a glowing report from Ofsted, will be here to answer your questions on Ofsted inspections and criteria, recent teacher strikes and much more.

If you have a question for Mike, get in touch by email at under the heading 'Hotseat' or leave your comments here.
