The party of opportunity for all children
We believe the first few years of people's lives are crucial in helping them to get on later in life. In Government we have:
- Given 15 hours free early education to all 3-4 year-olds and 40% of 2 year-olds. We are also giving free school meals to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
- Set up a £2.5 billion Pupil Premium, which puts more money in schools, targeted at pupils who need the most help.
- Created a record number of apprentices, with 2 million people starting an apprenticeship since 2010.
