Supply Teacher Usage

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in Kirklees Local Education Authority
third parties in relation to temporary staffing cover. My
hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of amounts paid
through the department's purchase ledger by school.

Notes:
1. I would like the information in electronic format. This should
avoid any printing cost issues.
2. In order to avoid your having to collate information from
peripheral systems, I am willing to accept information only from
your main system (I would like you to advise which system this is).
By main system I mean the system that handles the largest part of
the department's expenditure. If supplier payments are
made through separate systems, then I would like you to choose the
main system for each.
3. The information I require for each school is: School Name;
Supplier name and total amount paid.
4. I would like the information to cover the year 2008/9. I will
accept 2007/8 figures if this is not possible

Yours faithfully,

Amanda Walker

Dear Ms Walker

I refer to your enquiries on the above subject, and I apologise for the
delay in responding.

We can actually only provide a partial response to the information
requested - it is possible to show, for each Kirklees school that has
employed staff from outside agencies, how much the schools actually spent
in each of the two financial years in question. We do not hold any details
about the supplier names as the schools are individually responsible for
the engagement of such agencies to cover their temporary staffing needs.
This information is held by the schools themselves as they pay the
invoices from their own bank accounts. As Schools are separate bodies from
the Council for the purposes of Freedom of Information requests, you could
only obtain a greater level of detail by approaching them directly.

In general the large sums on the attached spreadsheet relate to special
schools and particular Nortonthorpe where we have had some difficulties.
Levels of sickness absence (and therefore cover required) tend to be
higher in special schools because of the more challenging and stressful
nature of the work, which is a national issue not confined to Kirklees.

I hope this information will be useful to you.

Yours sincerely

The Information Team

Dear Ms Walker

I refer to your recent enquiry relating to the above.

I would advise you that Kirklees do not hold details of the supplier
names, as the schools pay the invoices directly through their own bank
account.

However, I have attached a spreadsheet detailing schools and costs
incurred.

Yours sincerely
