Dear Debbie

Request for Information (Reference 15/FOI/10495)

 

I am writing in response to your request for information:

Would you please be able to release Special Needs school agency supply
staff spend for academic year 2014-2015.

 

Although we can provide information on total spend on school agency supply
staff (please see attached excel  -  the 2014/15 figures are currently
being compiled), we don’t hold information in enough detail to identify
spend specifically on special needs agency supply staff . This level of
information would only be available by contacting the schools themselves
directly. Their contact details are attached.

           

If you are unhappy with my response, you can complain or ask for a review
of your request. You need to do this by writing to us within 40 working
days of receiving this email, the full procedure is on our website at
[1]http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/CHttpH....

 

We would like to hear your views on our service. If you’d like to tell us
how we did, you can complete our feedback form online at
[2]http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/foifee...

 

I will now close your request as of this date.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear Freedom of Information questions/information requests,

The information provided appears to be for financial year 2013-2014, however I had requested the information to cover academic year 2013-2015?

Would it be possible for this to be re-run for the correct year?

Yours sincerely,

Deborah Hall

Perhaps it would be an idea to ask Gloucestershire County Council how much money the council has provided to schools/academies for the purpose of providing high needs SEN support via teaching supply agencies over and above the notional SEN budget(s) which were already allocated to individual schools for each of the academic years in question?
