Dear Swindon Borough Council,

I would like to know how much each school in the authority (Primary, Secondary, SEND etc) spent on third party supply agencies between 1st September 2019 and 1st May 2020.

It this could be broken down per school and how much that school spent with each third party agency that would be helpful. Otherwise, just a total per school spent on supply teacher and teaching assistants.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Smith

Swindon Borough Council

 We do apologies for the delay in responding to your request which has

Please find the response to the following questions:

 

I would like to know how much each school in the authority (Primary,
Secondary, SEND etc) spent on third party supply agencies between 1st
September 2019 and 1st May 2020.
It this could be broken down per school and how much that school spent
with each third party agency that would be helpful. Otherwise, just a
