BEST START FOR CHILDREN
Investment in early years can transform the lives of children and their families. Labour will reverse almost a decade of damaging Tory cuts.
We will open a Sure Start Centre in every community and provide free childcare for all 2-4-year olds. We’ll create a National Education Service, provide free school meals to all primary school children and fix the school funding crisis.
Labour will scrap tuition fees and bring back the maintenance grant. Our National Education Service will nurture every child and adult to find a path that’s right for them, by promoting all types of learning, skill and knowledge – technical, vocational, academic and creative.
This is a real investment in our future and does not leave our young people burdened with huge debts that they’ll never be able to pay back.
