Everyone should benefit from a high-quality education that helps them to maximise their potential, regardless of their personal circumstances, with additional support provided to disadvantaged pupils. The state should fund high-quality universal early years education. All pupils should be able to access relevant and affordable further and higher education options. All schools should be fairly funded based on local needs, and should have balanced intakes and equal freedom to innovate.
