Shortage of teachers means pupils travel to other school

Pupils will be driven to another school for morning lessons in literacy and numeracy Credit: PA

Pupils in a primary school in East Yorkshire have to travel to another school for part of each day because of difficulties in recruiting a teacher.

Easington Primary Academy pupils will be driven to another school for morning lessons in literacy and numeracy.

The school said a long-term supply teacher had left earlier than expected and a replacement could not be found.

We recognise that this means more change for the Easington years 5 and 6, but we have no option. We hope that being taught by the class teachers at Patrington will provide more consistency for the pupils than a succession of supply teachers for a couple of weeks at a time.
