Reception children in rural Cambridgeshire may be forced take taxis to schools up to 10 miles away due to "insufficient" space in village classrooms, it is feared.
Parents in Whittlesford are having to fight for their child to attend the local village school – where their older child already attends – after being allocated a place six miles away at Fowlmere Primary.
The anxious parents have told county councillor Peter Topping that such a decision would mean their 4-year-old would have to travel to school by taxi.
Meanwhile, according to Cllr Topping, another family from Ickleton has narrowly avoided having to send their child 10 miles by taxi to Linton Infant School.
