For the attention of Jan Lonsdale, Headteacher
Sefton Park Junior School (108961)
Dear Jan Lonsdale
It has long been recognised that ‘Working with children is seen as a predominantly female occupation. Yet male carers have much to offer including acting as positive role models for boys - especially from families where the father is absent.’ (DfEE, DSS and Ministers for Women, 1998)
The Freedom of Education Act 2000 is successfully being used to find out the gender mix of the early years workforce in local communities in England and Wales in 2016.
Comparisons are being made with figures obtained 5, 15 and 25 years ago.
1/ the numbers of male teachers,
2/ the number of female teachers,
3/ the number of male staff not employed as teachers, and
4/ the number of female staff not employed as teachers
who were based at Sefton Park Junior School on the 1st of March 2016.
Include both full time and part time staff, and staff such as cleaners and canteen staff who are not in direct contact with children. Do not include agency workers or peripatetic practioners.
