Tulip Siddiq responds to Nesta analysis showing that new reception pupils are the ‘least school-ready’ for generations

Tulip Siddiq MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, responding to Nesta analysis showing that new reception pupils are the ‘least school-ready’ for generations, said:

 

“The Conservatives failed management of the pandemic on top of a decade of childcare closures has deprived children of the early education that sets them up for the rest of their lives.

 

“Labour’s Children’s Recovery Plan would enable early years providers and schools to deliver targeted learning support for young children alongside the breakfast clubs and activities that every child needs to thrive.

 

“It is time for the Conservatives to match Labour’s ambition for the next generation and set out a proper plan for children’s recovery after coronavirus.”
