The Gender Pay Gap is a measure of the difference between men and women’s average earnings across an organisation.  It is expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings.  The calculated gender pay gap indicates that men are paid 14.3% (mean) more than women are.  This is a reduction of 7.3% from the previous year.

The Trust’s workforce consists of 89% female staff. When comparing like-for-like roles: 27% male and 73% female staff hold headteacher posts; female headteachers are paid 1% more than their male colleagues. 18% male and 82% female staff hold Deputy head posts; female deputies are paid 12% more than their male colleagues.


We are confident that the Trust’s gender pay gap does not stem from paying men and women differently for the same equivalent work but rather is the result of the roles in which men and women work within the Trust and the salaries that these roles attract; for example roles such as Teaching Assistants, Cleaners and Meal Time Assistants, in the vast majority of cases are held by females and these roles typically sit at a lower pay grade.


It is recognised in education that more women apply to work in the sector due to the specific working patterns i.e. part time and term time contracts.


God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love that you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10
