Reading needs to create at least 2,600 extra primary school places from 2014 because the economy is preventing young families from moving out into the suburbs.
The council has been working to expand the number of places but is calling on the Government for help. One school earmarked for changes is Churchend Primary in Tilehurst.
It's expansion would cost £5.8m but the Government would provide just £3 million. We speak to Cllr John Ennis.
