Dear Hartlepool Council,
I would like to find out the amounts paid by each school/nursery/education provision in Hartlepool, in relation to temporary staffing cover (Teachers, Cover Supervisors, Unqualified Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Nursery Nurses, Exam Invigilators, Caretakers, School Administrators, Lunchtime Supervisors) from 6th April 2017 to 5th April 2018.
My hope is to receive an electronic breakdown (in excel) of the amounts paid by each school (Nursery, Primary, Secondary and SEN schools and alternative education provisions). The information I require for each school is: School, name, amount spent, and the company this money was paid to.
Thank you for your email which has been received by the Council.

handled in accordance with the under the Freedom of Information Act 2000

Further to your request, I can advise that some of the information you

disclosure under s 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 as it is
available on the Department for Education’s website.
However, the information for the 2017/18 financial year will not be
published until July/August time.
The Council do not hold the information in relation to which agency each
school has paid/what type of teacher etc, this information would only be
available from the school. I have attached a list of schools, if you wish
to direct your request to each of the individual schools.
