As your next Member of Parliament, my priority would be to ensure our children have the best education. I will campaign for fairer funding and investment in new school places.
It is vital that children in Warwick and Leamington have the best chance to succeed and excel in their education as anywhere else in the country. That means making the government guarantee fairer funding per pupil so as to not unfairly concentrate investment and funding in a few select parts of the country. It also means ensuring that we have sufficient spaces in classrooms through the building of more schools, especially in advance of new development.
It is highly important that proposed major developments for schools to support new housing also have the support of communities near to the sites. Important too that they are built with the foresight in planning to ensure that the infrastructure is in place before they are constructed.
