The Isle of Man branch of the National Association of Headteachers says it's concerned by the level of cuts to education on the Island.

The Department of Education and Children has confirmed it's stopping its preschool and nursery program, as well as closing Bride Infants' School, and reducing a number of other services.

Parents have been outraged by the move, and an online petition calling for the decision to be reversed already has hundreds signatures.
