PASSIONATE pupils from Nailsea School invited MP Dr Liam Fox in to ensure world leaders help disabled children who are missing out on education.
Griffin House is taking part in the Send All My Friends to School campaign to remind world leaders of their promise in 2000 to provide universal primary education by 2015.
With only a year to go, 57 million children are still out of school and more than a third of them have a disability.
Students from Griffin House have been writing letters to Parliament and making colourful figures to represent the estimated 24 million disabled children who are missing out on school.
The youngsters presented the figures to Dr Fox to pass on to the Prime Minister to remind the UK of its pledge.
