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.

Check out our record in Government below.
