* Can you clarify if your request refers to both teaching and  non-
teaching staff. ?  
* It will be necessary for you to contact schools in the voluntary
sector direct, boards would not hold  information on staffing in the
voluntary sector.

is CCMS.

Thank you.  Belb is the employing authority to all staff in the CONTROLLED
sector and non-teaching staff in the  MAINTAINED sector. Your request
will be sent to appropriate board officers. The attachment advises how you
can expect your request to be handled.
 
 
I assume you will be submitting appropriate information requests to the
other sectors and individual voluntary schools for information not held by

Liz Johnston, Belfast Education and Library Board (Northern Ireland)

I have been supplied with the following response to your information
request.
 
“I refer to your request for information in relation to spend for 2012/13 
and 2011/12 of all temporary / supply staff in schools. Please refer to
the following notes in relation to the information requested which is
provided in the table below:
 

* The response provided is based on information in the board’s finance
system and includes expenditure for controlled, maintained and Irish
Medium schools in the board area. Although the board is not the
employing authority for teaching staff employed in the MAINTAINED
sector, we have been able to extracted this information from  the LMS
returns (Local Management for Schools )
* The costs involved include delegated costs (where individual Boards of
Governors are responsible for expenditure through local management of
school arrangements -LMS) and non-delegated costs (which fall under
responsibility of the board) for both mainstream and special schools.
* The information excludes expenditure for voluntary grammar schools and
grant maintained integrated schools which is not held by the board;”
