Maintained Nursery Schools (MNS) make a valuable contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. In the last three months, there have been nine representations led by MNS, one by an education trade union and two by education charities.

Representations made include the case for future funding and the sharing of research findings.
