Helen Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will list the primary schools in Warrington, North constituency which have received additional money to reduce class sizes. [127319]

Ms Estelle Morris

[holding answer 26 June 2000]: The schools in Warrington, North which have received additional funding as part of the Government's initiative to limit infant classes to 30 pupils are as set out. £620 million is available to support the initiative, and allocations so far to Warrington LEA amount to £2.8 million. This has helped to reduce the size of the average Key Stage 1 class in Warrington, North to 25.9. The figure in January 1997 was 27.5. The number of children in infant classes of 31 or more pupils in the constituency has fallen from 1,450 in January 1997, to 710 in January 2000.
