  1. Teachers were counted once against each subject and key stage they taught at, irrespective of the time spent teaching that subject and key stage. Therefore teachers may be counted against multiple subjects. The sum of subject and key stage teachers therefore does not sum to the number of secondary school teachers presented elsewhere in this publication.
