The number of Bath and North East Somerset pupils in class sizes of over 30 has soared to one in five pupils.
There are now 1592 more pupils in over-large classes than in 2010.
To tackle these inequalities, Labour has launched a new ‘Bright Future Taskforce’ to deliver a long-term strategy for children’s recovery and ensure every child has the chance to fulfil their potential.
Dan Norris said:
“As Metro Mayor I am determined that our young people will go on to get decent jobs and that all starts with a world class education. But over the last decade the Conservatives have made the wrong choices for local children, overseeing an increase in class sizes and failing to tackle the gap in learning which is holding children back. It’s time for new leadership.”
