Data on pre-school, primary and total teachers along with associated pupil teacher ratios for 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been revised to remove teachers who were double counted as a result of working in both sectors. Therefore these figures have been superseded, please use revised figures in the 2013 publication.
Table 4.2 below shows that more than three quarters of children at eligible pre-schools had access to a GTCS registered teacher during census week (75.4 per cent, up from 74.9 per cent the previous year). This includes children whose access was to a teacher providing only ad hoc or occasional support to the centre during census week. Some local authorities only ensure access to teachers for ante- and pre-school children (e.g. 3 and 4 year olds). The number of children with access to a teacher as a proportion of just ante- and pre-school children (rather than all children) is 85.7 per cent.
