Guildford attacted to Labour education policies

Labour offer the most attractive education policies for all ages and these will be particularly attractive to voters in Guildford, according to candidate Howard Smith.


Howard wants to ensure that the planned cuts to schools in the constituency are reversed and that all local schools are properly resourced.

That includes paying teachers and support assistants a proper wage by scrapping the public sector pay cap.

For younger children Labour will halt further closures to Sure Start centres, and will not scrap free school lunches for infant pupils, but extend it across the primary sector.

Labour will reintroduce the Education Maintenance Allowance for College students and scrap tuition fees for university students, so they do not go into work carrying huge debts.

And for those who missed out first time, Labour will guarantee that all people will get the opportunity to learn new skills whatever their age.

Compared with the current education landscape with schools under increasing pressure to sack teachers and assistants and increase class sizes and Tory plans to fund breakfasts not lunches, Howard believes Labour have the right answers for education in Guildford.
