Dear Caerphilly Council,
I am interested in the amounts paid by each school in Caerphilly Local Education Authority to third parties in relation to Agency Supply- temporary staffing cover.
My hope is to receive an electronic breakdown of amounts paid by from the Consistent Financial Reporting System for each school. The specific CFR codes I would like to examine are "CFR02 - Supply Teachers" and "CFR26 - Agency Supply Staff"
School Name |CFR02 | CFR26
XYZPrimary |£20'000 |£20'000
1. I would like the information in electronic format (and if possible, in Excel to assist with calculations). This should avoid any printing cost issues.
2. The information I require for each school is: School Name; and total amount paid to third parties in the procurement of agency supply teachers and support staff.
3. if it is also possible, please could the spend be broken down by primary, secondary and special needs schools.
4. I would like the information to cover the years 2008/2009 tax year, and 2009/10 tax year.
Your assistance with this request is greatly appreciated.
