Dear Marc C. Howells,

We need to know the number of lessons taken by staff with QTS and the number of lessons taken by staff without QTS.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Knights

Marc C. Howells, Bigyn Community Primary School, Carmarthenshire

Good morning,
In Key Stage 2 all lessons are taken by staff with QTS - 80 lessons per
week.
In the Foundation Phase, only PPA sessions are not taken by staff with
QTS. These PPA sessions are covered by Level 3 LSAs. Therefore 72 out of
80 lessons in the Foundation Phase are covered by staff with QTS.
Regards,
Marc Howells
