Schools in England are cutting back on teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) because of financial constraints, a survey for the Sutton Trust suggests.
The poll found 49% of primary schools and 57% of secondaries have cut back on TAs, while 18% of primaries and 54% of secondaries have cut teaching staff.
Information technology (IT) equipment and trips and outings are also being scaled back, it suggested.
The government said school funding was at record levels.
