Pupil-Teacher Ratio
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will publish the latest pupil-teacher ratio for Wales, excluding head teachers.
Mr. Wyn Roberts
The overall pupil-teacher ratio in maintained nursery, primary and secondary schools in Wales in January 1984 was 17·3. If, exceptionally, headteachers are excluded from the calculation, it is estimated that the ratio would be 18·7.
