S5W-15018: Ross Greer (West Scotland)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 1 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government for what reason it has not yet published the Teacher Census Supplementary Data, which it believes is normally published each December, but which was not not published in December 2017, and when it proposes to do so.

Answered by: John Swinney 8 March 2018

Teacher census supplementary data provides a further breakdown of the headline statistics published in each edition of the statistics bulletin Summary Statistics for Schools in Scotland and they have previously been published at varying intervals in the months following the headline statistics.

Teacher census supplementary data based on the 2017 edition of Summary Statistics for Schools in Scotland was published on 6 March 2018. More time was required to verify data given errors that came to light in the submission of information by local authorities.
