Primary schools in York have been handed a significant funding boost as the government strives to help schools to cope with the anticipated population surge.
North Yorkshire County Council has been handed £1.9 million to ensure that schools are able to cope with the additional stress.
The funding forms part of the government's nationwide drive to increase funding for primary schools.
Jill Hodges, assistant director of education and skills at City of York Council, told the York Press: "The most acute demand for places is in the Southbank area of the city where the council has already committed to spend £2.2 million to provide six new classrooms, a new hall and a new library.
"A further £200,000 is being spent across a small number of schools to enable previously mothballed classrooms to be brought back into use."
Last year, the authority was handed £1.5 million in funding to help cope with increased demand.
