• We will campaign against continuing government cuts to school budgets and make the case nationally for the fair funding so that our local schools are able to support students from all backgrounds to receive a good education and be able to progress into further and higher education, employment, and training.
  • We will work with schools and post-16 providers through the Education Improvement Partnership, to improve the educational outcomes for children in our borough.
  • We will work with schools and colleges to on programmes to inspire young people into adulthood and employment. This will include signposting careers advice, and through partnerships with the Chamber of Commerce, the Local Enterprise Partnership and collaborations like our Anchor Network of large employers, we will work with local employers to encourage workplace learning opportunities, including via the Cheshire and Warrington ‘Pledge’. We will also launch a specific programme that works with young people in schools and colleges in our Borough to inspire them to consider a career in professions where the council is struggling to recruit.
  • We will use arts, culture and sport activity as a route to inspire and build confidence amongst young people, and we will include primary age children in this programme so we can begin reducing inequalities from an early age.
  • We will continue to support home to school transport for those eligible, recognising the value of this to parents and pupils. Working with transport providers, we will try to maintain an efficient and practical service – despite the impact of ongoing government cuts.
