Supply Teachers: Expenditure

"To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what estimate she has made of the proportion of the schools budget spent on supply teachers in (a) Redcar and Cleveland local authority area (b) the North East and (c) England in the last 12 months for which figures are available." Asked by Anna Turley (Redcar) 20 November 2017 (Written question 114566).

Answered by Nick Gibb on 28 November 2017:

The below data has been taken from ‘income and expenditure in academies in England 2015/16’ and ‘consistent financial returns 2015-16 data’ for maintained schools. It covers directly employed supply teachers, agency supply teachers and supply teacher insurance.

In July 2017 we announced an additional £1.3 billion for schools and high needs across 2018-19 and 2019-20, in addition to the schools budget set at Spending Review 2015. This means funding per pupil for schools and high needs will be maintained in real terms for the next two years.

Alongside our substantial investment, we are committed to helping schools improve outcomes for pupils and promote social mobility by getting the best value from all of their resources. This includes providing support to schools – on issues like managing teacher workload, implementing flexible working, the recruitment of supply staff and the effective deployment of support staff – so that as much resource as possible is focused on enabling teachers to improve outcomes for pupils.
