Freedom of Information Request

Annual expenditure on teaching agencies for supply teacher purposes

Received: 15 December 2022

Please would you be so kind as to provide me your total annual expenditure on teaching agencies (for the supply of agency-employed teachers) in each of the years 2010/11 to 2021/22 (inclusive), and for each of those years, please also set out the number of schools to which such expenditure related (I am aware that academization may have reduced the number of schools in the area of the authority for which the authority provides such central services).

If you do not hold the data for every year requested, I would be grateful if you could please provide a response for the years for which you do hold data. I would like this information also to be broken down by type of school (primary school, secondary school, etc), but if that would increase the cost of dealing with this request overall such that it crossed the cost threshold for providing an answer, then I do not require that breakdown.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act, then please provide advice and assistance, under the section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.
