Dear Victoria Community Primary School, Wrexham,

Please could you supply the following information-

For the week beginning November 13th 2017. The total number of lessons taught in the school for those five school days.

The total number of lessons where a qualified teacher was not present and unqualified staff were there during the lesson i.e., cover supervisors, teaching assistants. Please note this should NOT include any lessons taken by students on a teacher training course.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Knights

Dear Richard,

Although we do not collect this information at school, I am more than happy to help you with your request.

For the week beginning November 13th 2017. The total number of lessons taught in the school for those five school days.

It is very difficult to answer this as in primary school we have themed days where we teach in a multi-disciplinary way.
However, each class on average would teach approximately 4 lessons a day. For example, Maths, English, Art and PE.
So we have 16 classes (inc. 2 part time nursery classes) at Victoria CP School - this would equate to 5 x 4 = 20 x 16 = 320.

The total number of lessons where a qualified teacher was not present and unqualified staff were there during the lesson i.e., cover supervisors, teaching assistants. Please note this should NOT include any lessons taken by students on a teacher training course.
No lessons this week were taught solely by a cover teacher or classroom assistant.

Regards,
Debbie Eccles
