Scarlett, a pupil at St John's Priory School, sent the Prime Minister a 'get well' card earlier in the lockdown after he took ill from the coronavirus.

A spokesperson from St John's Priory School said: "We are very proud of one of our pupils who, during lockdown, took the trouble to send our Prime Minister Boris Johnson, a get well card.

"At St John’s Priory School, we offer a values based education and endeavour to promote thoughtfulness in our children. From our youngest pupils in our Little Conkers Nursery right through until our pupils leave us for their senior schools, kindness and generosity characterise their outlook.

"Scarlett was delighted to receive a reply from Boris Johnson. This particular young lady has previously shown commitment to raising funds for worthy causes and recently raised awareness for the Princess Trust, by donating her lovely long hair to children who are receiving treatment for Cancer.

Headmistress, Mrs Tracey Wilson added: “We are incredibly proud of the way our pupils practise the traditional values we instil in our school community.”
