County Hall chiefs have launched a “Lancashire Ambition” plan to make sure all children have access to a good education.
The county council has made an ambitious pledge to provide the best opportunities for young people up to the age of 25 and ultimately improve their job prospects.
The authority’s cabinet last week approved the new plan which will build on the already high standard of education on offer in the county where the vast majority of schools are rated either good or outstanding.
It outlines how LCC will work closely with partners in health, education, governing bodies, parents and children and young people themselves, to make sure that everyone can access a good education and is able to perform to the best of their abilities.
Coun Susie Charles, cabinet member for children, young people and schools, said: “Everyone deserves a good start in life, and this plan reaffirms the commitment of the county council.”
