To ask the Secretary of State for Education, with reference to the Answer of 20 April 2017 to Question 70790 on arts: teachers, if she will publish the same data on the total number of (a) primary and (b) secondary school teachers for each school subject in each year since 2009-10.
The number of secondary school teachers teaching each subject is collected in the School Workforce Census and published each year in the ‘School Workforce in England’ statistical series available at the following web link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-school-workforce
For 2010 to 2012, the number of secondary school teachers teaching each subject is in Table 12. For 2013 to 2016, the number of secondary school teachers teaching each subject is in Table 13.
The number of teachers teaching each subject in secondary schools are estimates. The annual School Workforce Census typically receives data for over 70% of secondary school teachers. The sample data received have been weighted and grossed up so that all figures presented provide a representative, national picture.
Information on the subjects taught in primary schools are not collected.
The annual School Workforce Census started in 2010 and therefore data for 2009 are not available.
