We believe that rewarding and looking after our colleagues is key to helping them deliver inspiring care and education to all the children across the Trust.


All of our posts are measured against local and national pay scales and job descriptions. Where possible we adopt any sector-specific pay recommendations, such as the recent NJC award for support staff.


When you join our Team, you will be auto-enrolled to be a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (www.teacherspensions.co.uk) or Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) www.lgps.org, as appropriate to your job role.

Health & Well-being

As a member of our Trust, you will be entitled to a range of benefits to support your well-being, including a free Confidential Employee Helpline offering Telephone Counselling, Legal and financial information and Health & Well being advice.

Staff members can also choose to join a Health Cash Plan, which offers employees a simple way to help cut the cost of private healthcare, including for physiotherapy and dental treatment.

We also believe that prevention is better than cure, and in order to try and keep our colleagues fit and healthy, we offer Nurse Support Service, Health Screening Days, Stress Awareness Sessions, Counselling Services, Menopause Support and Weight Management. 

Staff Development

We believe that investing in our people is key. Line Managers will hold regular reviews with colleagues and ensure they are supported with their professional development.

We also work with the University of Portsmouth to hold a Trust-wide training day with a pedagogical focus for all classroom based staff on an annual basis.
