Dear Bridgend County Borough Council,

Please can you send me information to show what your annual monetary savings/losses for the school years 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 have been through using supply teaching agencies rather than employing supply teachers directly through the council or schools.

Yours faithfully,

K Davies

Dear Sir/Madam

I write further to your request for information and would advise that we require clarification of your request.

When you refer to "employing supply teachers directly through the council or schools", can you please confirm if you are referring to long term supply cover for example a 6 month contract?

I would be grateful if you could clarify and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Dear FOI Office,

I am referring to both long term supply and daily supply cover.

Yours sincerely,

K Davies

Dear Sir/Madam, 

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST X01- 6763

 

We refer to your email dated 25 September 2017 which contained a request
for information as set out in italics below.  Following consideration of
your request, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I
respond to each point as follows:

 

Please can you send me information to show what your annual monetary 
savings/losses for the school years 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 have been
through using supply teaching agencies rather than employing supply
teachers directly through the council or schools.

 

I would like to know the annual monetary savings when employing supply
teachers through agencies rather than directly through the council. 

By supply teachers I mean short term eg daily or weekly AND long term eg 6
month contracts or longer.

 

The Authority does not hold the information requested.  We have not
undertaken a calculation to show the annual monetary savings/losses when
employing supply teachers through agencies rather than directly through
the council.

 

The Freedom of Information Act does not require us to create new
information in order to comply with a request.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of the request, under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 you have the right to request a review of
the Council’s response to your request for information.  If you wish to
request a review, please write to:

 

Mr P A Jolley

Corporate Director, Operational and

Partnership Services and Monitoring Officer

Bridgend County Borough Council

Civic Offices,

Angel Street

Bridgend, CF31 4WB

 

within 28 days of the date of this letter.  If you remain dissatisfied
with the outcome of that review, you may seek further recourse by lodging
an appeal with the Information Commissioner at:
