Are You Paying Your Staff Correctly?

With so much going on in the school office it is understandable that most schools rely heavily on their Payroll provider and HR Administration provider to advise them when salaries should or must increase.

However, if your provider is not doing so, or they require you to confirm any uplifts, even when they are mandatory, which is not clear to you, then you could be paying your staff incorrectly and will have hefty back payments to make to make that right.

Teachers were given an increase in September 2015. As an example, a teacher on main scale 1 should have had an increase from £22,023 to £22,244.

Regarding Support staff, particularly under single status, it is important to ensure that they are being paid for the correct amount of working weeks per year. In the first five years this changes each year so that the pay will change.

Also – a pay award has finally been agreed with the unions-backdated to April 2016.  Make sure it is being applied and back dated correctly.
