Class sizes to rise in primary schools

Record numbers of children will be taught in classes of 31 or more from this September as primary schools struggle to cope with the biggest growth in pupil numbers for decades.

In 1998 Labour made it illegal for class sizes to go beyond 30 for children aged four to seven unless there were exceptional circumstances. If a class did go over 30 it had to be brought back down the following year. However, the coalition has now relaxed these rules so that class sizes can be above 30 for several years.


Looks like kids early years education is going to suffer under the Tories...again.

Are TA's jobs at risk then Melfi?

Definetly! I'm ok for now because we have a high proportion of SEN children which means our funding hasn't been cut as much as it has in other school's. It's still a worry though.

No doubt. I hope this isn't the slipperly slope to schools needing to get rid of TA's full stop because with class sizes increasing they are going to need them if kids education is not to suffer.

Why is this country going backwards?
