Table 3.4 shows the percentage of P1-P3 pupils in classes of 18 or fewer. These vary considerably between local authorities. The existence of large numbers of small schools in some areas is one of the main reasons for this. The national level of pupils in classes of 18 or fewer, rose from 12.7 per cent in 2006 to 21.6 per cent in 2010, before decreasing to 13.6 per cent in 2013.
