Did you know?

 The Liberal Democrats have delivered on Education, 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. In Cheltenham, schools are being allocated extra money in order to close the gap in performance in our schools. In 2013, All Saints Academy was allocated nearly £300,000 in extra government funding.
  • Created a record number of apprentices, with 1.6 million people starting an apprenticeship since 2010. In Cheltenham, this number is over 14,000.
