Details

On 30 April 2013 total school workforce headcount figures for the school workforce in England for November 2012 were released. These are available on this page together with comparable figures for earlier years. This release was updated on 17 July 2013 to include a file of underlying data, updated additional tables on teacher flows and retirements and additional data for pupil to teacher ratios (table 17).

The publication includes information on teacher and other school workforce staff, broken down by contract type and characteristics including gender, age and ethnicity. It also includes information on teachers’ pay and allowances, teachers’ qualifications, the curriculum taught by teachers, teacher vacancies and teacher sickness absence.

Information underlying these national figures at the local authority area, regional and school level was published in July 2013.

Additional tables covering initial teacher training, teacher entrants, wastage and turnover, flows, teacher retirements and out-of-service teachers aged under 60 were also published with this statistical first release on the 30 April 2013.

  1. The underlying data was revised because one of the ratios was originally calculated as the ratio of ‘teachers to teaching assistants’ but has been recalculated to be consistent with the 2 previous years which was the ratio of ‘teaching assistants to teachers’ (the other way round). It was originally calculated correctly but has been revised to allow users compare data over the years.
  2. Replaced underlying data file to fix incorrect coding within the data files relating to statutory low age, statutory high age and school phase.
  3. First published.
