Supply Teachers (E02 and E26)
Dear Norfolk County Council,
I would like to know how much each school in the LA spent on temporary supply teaching and other supply staff from external supply teaching agencies from September 1st 2020 - 12th October 2020. I would like to know this information for each Nursery, Primary, Secondary and SEND school. I would also, in addition to this, like to know which agency/s each school spent money with, broken down per school. As this information is not available on any Government website for this time period, this information is not already available, readily, to the public. I believe all LAs will have this information listed under 'E02' and 'E26'.

teaching and other supply staff from external supply teaching agencies
from September 1st 2020 - 12th October 2020. I would like to know this

We attach an Excel spreadsheet list relating to paid supply which sets
out the details for the period 1 September to 30 September 2020. The full
month of October 2020 data period cannot be provided until the period has
been closed and will therefore not be available until 15 November 2020.
The Council is unable supply costs details for part months as requested.
Please note that the list attached relates to payment of the service and
may not relate to the provision of supply teaching staff.
The Council only holds this information for local authority maintained
Please note that if the data required is actual supply as opposed to paid
supply you may also wish to send your request to the individual schools,
academies and their multi -trusts.
Schools in Norfolk are separate organisations and data controllers in
their own rights.
You asked for:
2. To know which agency/s each school spent money with, broken
down per school
