Gender mix of school staff

The request was successful.

For the attention of Herminder Channa, Principal
Ark Boulton Academy (140014)

Dear Herminder Channa

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 adults working in schools at different stages of a child’s education in England in 2016.

Comparisons are being made with figures from different types of schools and also figures obtained 5, 15 and 25 years ago, and from other countries.

Please disclose in FTE units:

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 Ark Boulton Academy on the 1st of April 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.

Thank you for your precious time.

Yours sincerely

Peter Williams
