A small village school will be forced to teach pupils across a four-year age range in a class of 40 because of cuts by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The Hull Daily Mail reports that North Frodingham Primary School will have to combine its two junior classes into one from Spetember.

The authority's director of education, John Ginnever, said: 'We are not a bottomless pit of money - our income is determined by central government. And we can't give money to individual schools. If we gave North Frodingham an extra teacher, we would have to give it to all our schools.'

The council has already asked parents, teachers, councillors and unions to lobby the education secretary, David Blunkett, to change the way rural authorities are funded.
