We work with local primary schools to make sure that the pay that you are receiving reflects your hard work with them whilst charging them a fair rate. Teachers who accept longer term positions will be offered a higher rate of pay to reflect their increased workload. This will be agreed with the teacher and school before it commences.
We work with our accountants using PAYE, so all tax and National Insurance is deducted.
We don’t work with an umbrella company so any queries can come to us!
As supply teachers only get paid when they work, you also have the option for your holiday pay to be paid to you each time you work or held back by us and released when you request it (for example, during the summer holidays). The amount of holiday pay accruing will show on your payslip.
If you have any questions about pay, our pay rates or what you should do if you have more than one job, please call the office on 01225 302011.
The Agency Worker Regulations were designed to give agency workers clear support and guidance in matters relating to pay and conditions. When you reach 12 weeks in a placement, you are entitled to the same benefits as someone directly employed by the school. This needs to be 12 consecutive weeks and doesn’t just apply to full time workers. Holiday weeks do not count but pause the clock and resume after. Once you have reached 12 weeks in a school, you will receive the higher rate for all placements that you complete in that school, not just the bookings that are part of the long term contract. We will always notify you when you have reached 12 weeks and that you pay is set to rise.
Please note: The pay rate is decided on what the school advertises the job as, not what pay scale you were on previously. This will always be discussed/negotiated before you accept a position.
