Concerns have been raised over the number of English primary schools reaching peak capacity, with 295,000 more primary school pupils expected to enrol by 2020 

Labour Party MPs have criticised the government's "failed approach to planning for school places" as a "broken system", amid claims that one in four primary schools is now full or over-capacity.

Statistics from the Department for Education suggest that around 23 per cent of state primary schools are now full or over capacity. A further 295,000 more primary school pupils are expected to enrol by 2020, adding pressure on top of a new government policy to turn existing schools into academies.
