Schools - Third Party Supply Spend

Andy Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council as part of a batch sent to 147 authorities

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was refused by Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council.

Dear Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council,

I would like to know how much each primary, secondary and SEND school in the LEA (of which data is held) has spent on Supply Teaching or Teaching Assistant cover with external companies, and how much has beent spent with each of those companies per school, ideally. If this information is not available, then just a total spend by school.

I would like this data from the 1st September 2020 - 1st July 2021. However, if it is easier to run the information for the year then I can wait until the academic year finishes and you can send that over.

Yours faithfully,

Andy Smith
