The Governors of Finchale Primary School are looking for an experienced Administration Assistant to support the school for one day per week.

We are looking for someone who:
• can be flexible with the days they work, to provide cover for our School Office Manager as and when required
• can uphold our school ethos and values
• is able to work independently and use their initiative, as well as being able to follow direction

Calculation of term time only pay

Standard term time only pay is calculated on the basis of the following:
• Number of ‘teaching’ weeks – 38 weeks; plus
• Public (bank) holidays – 1.6 weeks (8 days); plus
• Individual leave entitlement - 5.2 weeks (26 days) or 6.2 weeks (31 days)
Individual leave entitlement is calculated on the length of continuous service.
Employees with less than 5 years’ service will receive 26 days annual leave.
Employees with more than 5 years’ service will receive 31 days annual leave.
For example:

Calculation for employees with less than 5 years’ service:
38 weeks (term time) + 26 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 44.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

Calculation for employees with more than 5 years’ service:
38 weeks (term time) + 31 days (annual leave) + 8 days (public holidays) = 45.8 weeks’ pay, to be paid in 12 equal monthly instalments

This post is not open to job share.

Closing date: Monday 18th October 2021 at 12 noon
Interview date: Week commencing 1st November 2021
