§ 24. Mr. Illsley
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what assessment she has made of class sizes in schools in Barnsley in the current financial year. 
§ Mr. Robin Squire
Information on class sizes is derived from returns made by individual schools to the Department in January each year. This will include class size information for maintained nursery, primary and secondary schools in Barnsley. In January 1994 the average size of one-teacher classes in Barnsley was 27.4 for maintained primary schools and 22.9 for maintained secondary schools. Information for January 1995 will be available in the autumn.
