Dear Rhondda Cynon Taff Council,

With regards to the Freedom of Information Act, I would like a
summary of the school spends on agency supply staff within Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC for the financial year 2020 - 2021.

I would like an electronic breakdown of amounts
paid by school and to which supplier.

Yours faithfully,

Michelle Jones

Dear Ms Jones

We refer to your Freedom of Information Request in respect of Agency
Supply Spend in Schools during 2020/21.

Firstly, may we apologise for the delay in responding to your request.
Refer to the attachment for the information. You will see from the
attachment that individuals have been redacted. This is because under the
FOI Act disclosure of this information would breach the fair processing
principle contained in the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018.

Please note: the attached spreadsheet relates to payments made by the
Local Authority only. Some Schools have their own bank accounts, therefore
to have an accurate and true reading of supply teaching spend, you will
also have to contact the governing bodies of the schools that are not
included in the information provided. You may be aware, schools are
separate public bodies for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act
2000 (the Act).

A full list of schools within RCT can be viewed via the following:

If you are unhappy with the way your request for information has been
handled, you can request a review of the Authority’s response. If you wish
to exercise this right, you must do so within 40 working days of the date
of this response. Please set out in writing your grounds and send your
appeal to Mrs Julie Llewellyn. She may be reached at
[2][email address] or at RCT CBC, The Pavilions, Clydach
Vale, Tonypandy, CF40 2XX.

Additionally you may, if you wish, find out more about the Freedom of
Information Act & Environmental Information Regulations from the
Information Commissioner at [3]http://www.ico.org.uk/
