Dear Accrington Academy

Please send me the overall staff turnover rate (teaching and non-teaching), including staff with either full-time or part-time contracts, at Accrington Academy. It would be helpful if you used the following formula:

(total number of leavers during the last twelve months x 100)
divided by
(average total staff over the period [start headcount and end headcount divided by two])

Please include all staff appointed directly or indirectly by United Learning Trust with cost code Accrington Academy comprising those on permanent or temporary contracts excluding agency cover.

Include staff who have left voluntarily and also those who have left involuntarily due, for example, to the culmination of their contract, dismissal or redundancy and as a result of retirement. Do not include staff leaving one post to immediately take on another position at the academy.

Also, please send me the following measure of staff retention from the date this request is received. For this stability index, use the following calculation:

(number of staff with service of one year or more in current post x 100)
divided by
(total number of staff in post one year ago)

I would be grateful if you could also supply numbers of teaching and non-teaching staff:
1/ total headcounts at the start and end of the period,
2/ average headcount (start headcount and end headcount divided by two) and
3/ number of leavers over the period.

Yours sincerely

Peter D Williams
