The aim of this policy is to help maintain and improve the quality of education provided for pupils in the school by ensuring that the contribution of all staff, both teaching and support, is valued and that staff receive recognition for their work in relation to their performance.
This policy will assist the Governing Body in managing pay and grading issues within the school in a fair and transparent manner, whilst having due regard to the constraints exercised by the annual budget allocation.
The Governing Body supports the principle of equality of opportunity in employment. In its operation of this policy it will endeavour to ensure that staff receive equal treatment irrespective of their age, gender, race, colour, ethnic origin, family commitments, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or religious beliefs.
All pay related decisions will be taken in compliance with the provisions of The Equality Act 2010, The Employment Rights Act 1996, The Employment Relations Act 1999, The Employment Act 2002, The Employment Act 2008, The Part-Time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000, The Fixed Term Employees’ (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2002, The Agency Workers Regulations 2010, all as amended.
Adjustments will be made to take account of special circumstances e.g. absence on maternity or long-term sick leave. The exact adjustments will be made on a case-by-case basis according to the circumstances but may include taking a longer time period into account to gather evidence of performance.
