This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Dear Bridgend County Borough Council,

I wish to know please whether your Director of Education sends out an annual questionnaire to all schools asking for feedback on private agencies who supply staff to LA maintained schools. If so, how many of these were returned in recent years since the NPS selected a preferred supplier?

Yours faithfully,
