Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Baroness Morgan of Drefelin on 12 December 2008 (WA 14) and on 13 January (WA 138-39), whether they would set targets for the number of male and female support staff in schools if the proportions of male to female staff given in the Answer on 13 January were reversed.[HL735]

The recruitment and deployment of support staff are the responsibility of schools and local authorities taking into account local priorities and needs. There are currently no plans to introduce targets for the number of male and female support staff in schools.
