Fact-checked: '500,000 schoolchildren in classes bigger than 30 pupils'

Around 500,000 schoolchildren are in classes bigger than 30 pupils, according to Ukip leader Paul Nuttall.

That’s correct, Full Fact say.

More specifically: around 540,000 primary school pupils in English state-funded schools were in classes with 31 or more pupils in January 2016.
