Dear Richmondshire District Council,

Can I please request, in the form of a spreadsheet such as Excel or CSV file, an itemised list of all council nurseries, the number of staff and the number of children in each nursery.

To include,
The name and address of each nursery
The number of children registered in each nursery
The number of teachers in each nursery*
The number of other nursery staff (e.g. nursery assistants, etc)*

*For teacher and other nursery staff numbers please include staff numbers from the years 2015 to 2019. Please include the number of teachers and other staff under separate columns for each year. E.g. Year - 2015, Number of teachers, Number of Other Nursery Staff and so on.

If this request cannot be met within the cost limits for Freedom of Information requests, please can you provide me with advice and assistance on how I may refine my request.

Yours faithfully,
Aimee Stanton

Richmondshire District Council
