Queen’s Speech and Childcare

Queen’s Speech 2013

The Queen’s Speech at the state opening of parliament outlined the following plans for children in the UK:

  • To make sure that every child has the best start in life, regardless of background, further measures will be taken to improve the quality of education for young people.
  • Plans will be developed to help working parents with childcare, increasing its availability and helping with its cost.
  • My government will also take forward plans for a new national curriculum, a world-class exam system and greater flexibility in pay for teachers.
  • My government will also take steps to ensure that it becomes typical for those leaving school to start a traineeship or an apprenticeship, or to go to university.
