Schools struggle with foreign children influx

By Victoria Thake Last Updated: 2:45am GMT 26/11/2007

An influx of migrant children is changing the culture of schools and pushing some to 'breaking point', the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) will claim this week.
Some schools do not have the resources to cope with scores of school-age children arriving in the UK from eastern Europe with a poor grasp of the English language and customs, a Government inquiry will be told.
The warning follows the publication of figures from the Government Actuary's Department which suggest that increased levels of immigration and an increasing birthrate could result in the population of the UK rising to about 90 million by the middle of the century.
