Agency costs for pupil referal units/short stay schools

The request was successful.

Dear Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council,

I am interested in the amounts paid by each Behavioural pupil referral unit / short stay schools in Solihull
LEA to third parties in relation to temporary agency staffing cover. My
hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of amounts paid
through the department's purchase ledger by school from September 2011 to December 2011.

Please can you supply the following information in an excel spreadsheet format:-

School Name – URN or DFE number – agency/supplier name – total amount paid

Yours faithfully,

Amanda Walker
