Dear Angela Sandles




Unfortunately this Authority does not hold information regarding (a) the
total number of lessons to be taught in week commencing 13^th November
2017 and (b) those lessons where a qualified teacher will not be present
and unqualified staff will be there during the lesson.


However, we believe information of this nature may be held by the school,
who will also be covered by the Freedom of Information Act.


Their contact details can be found at - 


We are sorry that we cannot help further on this occasion but if you are
in any way dissatisfied with the handling of your request, or have any
further information needs in the future then please contact
