Ten Albanians began lessons at the Derbyshire school this month where they were each paired with a British pupil. Journalist Avdullah Mujku, from the Kosovan capital Pristina, whose five-year-old daughter Vjosa was one of the new intake, said: "In Kosovo children don't start school until they are seven and the schools are nothing like this. They are much smaller and more basic." Serb pupils suffer playground taunts, 13. Photograph by DERBY EVENING TELEGRAPH
