FOI Request - Teachers Leave
I would like to establish on how many occasions teachers employed by your local authority have been given permission to take leave to go on holiday during school term time.
For each of the last three full financial years, please can you tell the number of occasions where teachers or headteachers were given:
2 working days off, 3 working days, 4 working days off, 5 working days off and two weeks or more off.
For clarity this would not be occasions where authorised leave is given for bereavements, weddings, union duties, attending the MOD etc It is solely where a teacher has requested time off during term time to go on holiday and this has been granted.
This information is not held and is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
