Schools - Third Party Supply Spend

The request was refused by Norfolk County Council.

Dear Norfolk County 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
