(2) Teachers are counted once against each subject which they are teaching.
(3) Includes higher degrees but excludes BEds.
(4) Teachers qualified in combined/general science are treated as qualified to teach biology, chemistry, or physics. Teachers qualified in biology, chemistry or physics are treated as qualified to teach combined/general science.
(5) Teachers qualified in other/combined technology are treated as qualified to teach design and technology or information and communication technology. Teachers qualified in design and technology or information and communication technology are treated as qualified to teach other/combined technology.
(6) Information and Communication Technology is abbreviated as ICT and Personal, Social and Health Education is abbreviated as PSHE.
(7) ‘Other’ not included in total percentages.
