Dear Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council,
Please can you confirm the total spend on third party agencies for the provision of educational supply staff by your local authority.
I would like to know the amounts paid by each Primary, Secondary and FE Institution in the local authority, in relation to temporary staffing cover (Teachers, Cover Supervisors, Unqualified Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Nursery Nurses etc).
The time frames I require are from 1st September 2019 until present if at all possible.
Please could you supply this information (in excel) for each school including school name, type of school, amount spent, and the company this money was paid to.
Thank you for your request for information ( FOI 5680340 ) submitted under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 which has been given the above-mentioned reference number. Please quote this on any correspondence regarding your request.
Stockport MBC is currently handling a significant amount of ongoing information requests.
We are unable at this present time to confirm whether we will be able to provide the information requested within the statutory time frame.
Please be advised the information returned may not be complete in whole or in part. This is due to government wide measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19,
There is a large volume of business critical work ongoing, including the possibility of staff in non-critical roles being reallocated to operational roles.
We are currently focussing our efforts toward the protection and safeguarding of high risk groups, the public and our staff during the COVID-19 outbreak, and as such the business area may not be able to provide full information for the completion of the Freedom of the Information request.
I trust, during this difficult time, you will understand this position. If you are dissatisfied, we would advise you re submit your request in 3-6 months time, where we may be in a position to confirm our response or provide further information.
We appreciate the support of the public and media in keeping requests to a manageable amount during this time.”
If there will be a charge for disbursements e.g. photocopying in order to provide the information, we will inform you as soon as possible to see if you wish to proceed; however such charges are usually waived if they amount to less than £10.
