Dear Ms Jones

 

Thank you for your information request of 31 August 2017.  Aberdeen City
Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the information
requested.

 

Please can you confirm what your total spend on agency supply teachers was
during the financial year 2015-16?

With regards to external agency supply teachers, ACC has its own relief
pool for supply teachers and therefore the total spend on external agency
supply teachers during the financial year 2015-16 is none.

 

The total spend on supply teachers from ACC’s own relief pool for the
financial year 2015-16 was as follows:

 

Primary school teachers - £951,582

Secondary school teachers - £792,887

 

Please note that these figures do not include employer’s superannuation
and national Insurance costs.  The merging of payrolls has meant we are
unable to clearly identify such costs on specific groups of staff within a
much larger teaching group.

 

Please can you confirm the names of the organisation/s you procure supply
teachers from?

As ACC has its own relief pool for supply teachers, we do not use external
agencies and therefore do not have this information. 

 

We hope this helps with your request.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Anna Buchan

Information Compliance Officer
