Labour pledges to cap class sizes at 30

Ed Miliband is set to announce that Labour will cap class sizes for five-to-seven year olds at 30. Labour argues that it can fund the £180m cost of its cap by ending the creation of free schools in areas that do not need them. Schools would have 12 months to bring class sizes down to 30 under the plan. Mr Miliband will claim the Coalition has allowed the number of infants taught in classes of more than 30 to rise from 31,265 in 2010 to 93,345 last year.
