S5W-04911: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 21 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what the average nursery class size has been in each year since 2010-11, broken down by local authority.

Answered by: Mark McDonald 1 December 2016

The Scottish Government does not collect information on class size for nursery schools. Mandatory staff:child ratios, set through the National Care Standards, are applied across all nursery settings and ensure that all children receive an appropriate level of care and support.
