Teachers and social care workers health-related sick leave

I require information on teaching staff and social care workers taking sick leave due to mental health-related illnesses (such as stress, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc.)  

By teaching staff I am referring to teaching staff at local authority-run primary and secondary schools in your area. I would like the information for all teachers and teaching assistance staff. This includes: teaching assistants, NQTs, teachers, middle management, senior management and head teachers.

By social care staff I am referring to staff employed by your council working in adult social care.

Please could I have information on:

  1. The total number of teaching staff employed at local-authority run schools in your area in the financial years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17?
  2. b) The number of calendar days teaching staff have taken off due to mental health-related illnesses in the financial years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17?
