FOI Request - Probationer Teachers in Primary Schools

Request 101003366782 

I would like to request the release of information regarding primary school probationary teachers.

I have attached a spreadsheet to make my request as clear as possible and ensure comparability of data. It has space for the name of your local authority and the name of each primary school in your area, as well as probationer numbers in each school across the past five academic years and the coming academic year.

Please note that the column for 'Assigned' probationers should show the total number that the council initially sought to place in each school. If, for example, a probationer was allocated and later left before completing the year, or was allocated and declined the offer for whatever reason, they should still be included in the figures in this release.

The column for 'Completed' probationers should show the total number who finished the required academic year as part of gaining their full teaching qualification. Obviously this cannot be completed for year 2023/24.

I have left space for notes for any additional information about discrepancies between the two figures. For example, it would be helpful to know if the Assigned and Completed numbers differed because of rejected offers or because probationers failed to complete the year.
