    A temporary classroom could be in place at a popular Hartshill school in time for the new school year in September.

    Michael Drayton Junior School,

    Warwickshire County Council could be asked to turn some of the wide grass verges on the surrounding roads into parking places to help cater for the rising numbers.

    Michael Drayton Junior School, on The Woodlands in the centre of the village, currently has 500 pupils but extra space is needed to deal with children moving into new homes being built in their catchment areas of Galley Common, Ansley Common and Camp Hill.

    The county council has applied to North Warwickshire District Council to site the portakabin on the school playground as a temporary measure until a planned extension is built.
