Young Beatrice’s picture will go on the front of the card while the back will feature the runners-up from Purwell Infants and Nursery, Littletown School, Hollybank Trust and Engage Academy.

Ms Leadbeater said: “I wanted my first Christmas card as the MP for Batley and Spen to showcase the talent of pupils in some of the wonderful schools across the constituency.
