Pension Scheme

All contracted members of staff will be automatically enrolled into either the Teachers’ Pension Scheme, with an employer contribution of 23.68% or the Local Government Pension Scheme, with an employer contribution of 25% (whichever is appropriate to role). All staff are entitled to opt-out of the pension scheme should they wish to do so.


We recognise the importance of a good work-life balance and provide generous holiday entitlements. Support staff are entitled to between 24-26 days rising to 27-29 days after 5 years’ service, (dependent on grade and pro rata for part-time staff). This will increase by one day from 1st September 2023. This entitlement is in addition to any Bank or Public holidays. If you work term time only, your holiday entitlement will be a minimum of 5.6 weeks, to be taken during school closure periods. Teaching staff receive the standard school holiday allowance.

Flexible and Family Friendly Policies

We understand that our employment policies need to be flexible and responsive in order to promote diversity and equality, and to attract and retain the highest quality workforce. We offer flexible working opportunities; term time only and part-time roles; family friendly policies e.g. maternity, paternity and shared parental leave.

Cycle to Work

Our Cycle to Work scheme enables employees to purchase brand-new bicycles and cycling equipment via salary sacrifice, making tax and National Insurance savings.

Employee Assistance Programme

Our Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) is supplied by Health Assured, who provide confidential support 24/7 to all employees. Services include, counselling financial information, legal as well as health and well being support.

Dedicated Mental Health First Aiders
