Around 80,000 primary school pupils in Wales are being taught in classes of 30-35, and a further 12,000 in classes of 36-40, the Western Mail reports (p3).

The figures are revealed in a survey of a third of the country's primary school classes, carried out by the National Union of Teachers in Wales.

NUT leader Gethin Lewis said the situation had 'reached crisis point and is a national scandal'. He claimed that independent primary schools had reduced their class sizes to well below 20 pupils.
