There is a warning that Cornish teachers could lose their jobs because of changes to funding for children with learning difficulties.

The government has cut the amount of cash it provides to help schools provides resources for students with special educational needs.

All schools now have to pay at least £6,000 per pupil, sparking fears budgets for stafffing will have to be cut instead.

Kathy Wallis, south west reprentative of the NASUWT, said: "All children have education as a right, but what this government is doing is playing fast and loose with our children with special needs, the most vulnerable students that we have. And it's using these students as a cost-cutting measure.

Kathy added "Schools will have to look very seriously as to whether or not they can actually afford to take these students. Academies for example, having to find this extra amount of money, may be the difference between the student going to that school and not going to the school of their choice."
