Footnotes

  1. Teachers were counted once against each subject that they were teaching, regardless of the amount of time they spend teaching the subject. Teachers were counted under each key stage they were recorded as teaching to; a mathematics teacher who taught all years (7-11) would be included under number of teachers of for years 7 through 9 and years 10 and 11. Teachers are counted against each subject taught, they may therefore appear under more than one category. However they will only appear once in the total regardless of the number of separate subjects taught.
