Dear Buckinghamshire 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
