Dear Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council,
Please can you tell me if any of your schools employ supply teachers directly? If so can you tell me how many were on your payroll and were paid directly in the academic year 2017/2018? What was the cost of direct employment? If you do not employ any directly, can you tell me a reason for this when the Cabinet Secretary for Education says schools have a choice whether to employ directly or to use agencies.
