A Department for Education spokesperson said:
We know that London has pressures, which is why we’re creating thousands more places to deal with the impact of soaring birth rates on primary schools.
We've already invested just over £1 billion in London this year and last to create extra school places and hundreds of millions of pounds will follow.
We are building Free Schools and letting the most popular schools expand to meet demand.
We are also intervening to drive up standards in weak primaries across the capital, which have empty places simply because parents don't want to send their children there.
