Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) how many primary school teachers have a subject-specific specialism in each subject; 
(2) how many primary schools do not have a teacher with a mathematics specialism; 
(3) how many primary schools have an executive headteacher. 
Jim Knight: The information requested in his question (232413) is not held centrally, however Advanced Skills Teachers, Leading Teachers, and other primary school teachers may be able to provide primary schools with specialist mathematics support. We do not hold numbers for how many are doing this centrally. The recent Independent Review of Mathematics Teaching in Early Years Settings and Primary Schools by Sir Peter Williams estimated that approximately 3,000 teachers with a mathematics specialism are currently working in primary schools. By 2019 we will have implemented Sir Peters main recommendation in accordance with his timetable, so that all primary schools will have access to a mathematics specialist teacher with their numbers increasing to around 13,000.
Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many primary school pupils of each age have been given a fixed-period exclusion, broken down by reason for exclusion, in the last 12 months. 
Sarah McCarthy-Fry: The requested information is shown in the table.
