Dear Linda,

Thank you for this. In my request I did envisage that staffing costs would be provided as part of the council's response.

Please advise whether I need to make a new FOI to obtain this information.

Yours sincerely,

Fiona Nicholson

FOI East, Cheshire East Council

Dear Ms Nicholson

Thank you for contacting us.

I don't think staffing costs were mentioned in your original request, but if you can leave this with me, I am sure we can get some information for you without the need for another request.

As soon as I hear back from the department I will be in touch again.

Yours sincerely

Hi Martin

You're right, I didn't actually specify staffing costs, so it was more in my head than written down but if you could get the information without an additional separate request that would be great.

Thank you

Yours sincerely,

Dear Ms Nicholson

Further to your query, the Children & Families Team have advised the following:

"The EHE officer is on Soulbury 5-8 scale. His work and role includes other aspects unrelated to EHE (c. 25%). Time is also spent with organisations and families exploring options available, which may or may not result in a family choosing EHE or returning/beginning school".

I hope this answers your query satisfactorily.

Yours sincerely

Martin Johnson

Hi Martin

Thank you very much for chasing this up!

Fiona

Dear Martin

I am so very sorry to write again but is this 25% spent on EHE-related work or 25% outside EHE?

Fiona

SOCIAL CARE COMPLAINTS MANAGER, Cheshire East Council

Dear Ms Nicholson,

I can confirm that approximately 75% of the EHE Consultant's time is spent on EHE-related work, whilst the remaining 25% is spent on other work such as Children Missing Education (CME) and English as Another Language (EAL).

Regards,
Alan.
