Manifesto 2019 – Nottingham People

Nottingham is a vibrant, exciting city we can all be proud of. It’s a place
where our communities are strong and diverse and stand together to celebrate successes and to take care of each other. Nottingham is also one of the country’s youngest cities, making it a lively and dynamic place to be. Nottingham Labour is proud to be a part of this great city and will continue to support our reputation as a place where people can get along with
each other, especially in difficult times.

We have a strong record on delivering for all of Nottingham’s people. Some of our proudest achievements since 2019 include:

  • Almost 90% of Nottingham children are attending schools judged good or outstanding by Ofsted, up from 69% in 2015.
  • Increased the number of Nottingham foster carers by 30%.
  • Delivered over 150,000 free books to more than 5000 children as part of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.
  • Worked in partnership to retain all 18 Children’s Centres across the city.
  • Created 62 new special school places for children with additional needs and worked with mainstream schools to support hundreds of other children.

Nottingham is a great place and it’s the people who make it. Nottingham Labour is committed to investing in Nottingham people and encouraging everyone in Nottingham to be ambitious for themselves. That’s why some of the things we are committed to doing over the next four years include:

  • Set up a council owned company to deliver care services in Nottingham, with a well trained and well paid workforce, to improve the quality of care.
  • Reduce permanent exclusions by 50% and campaign against permanent exclusions and off-rolling to make sure every Nottingham child is in school.
  • Ensure that all Nottingham children attend a school judged good or outstanding by Ofsted.
  • Tackle holiday hunger by supporting school holiday lunch clubs in our most deprived neighbourhoods and campaign to extend free school meals to all primary school children by 2025.
  • End period in Nottingham by ensuring free sanitary products are provided to young women who need them.
