HC Deb 11 June 1980 vol 986 c184W
Mr. Gummer

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many one-teacher schools there are in Scotland.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

At September 1979 there were 78 education authority one-teacher primary schools in Scotland. There were also 107 nursery schools with a single teacher, generally assisted by nursery nurses, and 31 special schools, mostly staffed by instructors, which had the services of a single full-time teacher or a part-time teacher. These figures exclude one-teacher departments within larger schools.
