  1. File added collating school level information in the same format as in previous years: 'school tables school workforce census 2019'

  2. Correction made to the metadata for "Teacher and support staff FTE and headcount numbers" underlying data. This had resulted in the headcount figures being mislabelled in the 'create tables' tool.

This publication provides the latest information on the composition of the school workforce employed in state-funded schools in England. 

The release is based on data collected from schools and local authorities in November 2019 as part of the School Workforce Census. The census collects detailed information on teachers, teaching assistants and other classroom and non-classroom based school support staff. 

Independent schools, non-maintained special schools, sixth form colleges and further education establishments are not in scope.
