Jacqui Smith

Description

In this programme schools minister, Jacqui Smith, talks to us about her time at school in Malvern.

The MP for Redditch, Inkberrow and Cookhill reveals how the support of her parents and teachers helped her to become the first pupil from her school to win a place at Oxford University.

Meanwhile, journalist Steve Richards is given access to the minister's school reports, which demonstrate her early political ambitions and engagement in school activities. Ms Smith explains how she became active in local politics from the age of seven, discusses her role as milk monitor and reveals how her experiences at school have shaped her policies as schools minister.
