Executive Pay 2019/20

In line with the Academies Financial Handbook 2020, academy trusts must now publish on its website in a separate readily accessible form the number of employees whose benefits exceeded £100k, in £10k bandings, as an extract from the disclosure in its financial statements for the previous year ended 31 August.

Benefits for this purpose include salary, other taxable benefits and termination payments, but not the trust’s own pension costs. In the case of employees who are trustees, their salary and other benefits will also be disclosed in £5k bandings in the trust’s financial statements, as set out in the model trustees’ remuneration note in the Academies Accounts Direction.

The number of employees whose employee benefits (excluding employer pension costs) exceeded £100,000 for the year ended 31 August 2020 was:

£100,000 – £110,00010
£110,001 – £120,00000
£120,001 – £130,00000
£130,001 – £140,00000

Public Sector Equality Duty

Since the Equality Act became law in 2010, public bodies have been required by law to uphold a duty to promote disability, race and gender equality. In April 2011 this was replaced by a single public sector equality duty (known as the PSED or the equality duty). This new duty extends to all the aspects of a person’s identity – known as ‘protected characteristics’ – that are protected under the Equality Act 2010: race, disability, sex, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity and gender reassignment.

From April 2012 schools have been required to publish information annually, showing how they comply with this equality duty.  Schools are also required to publish objectives linked to this duty at least once every four years. In complying with this duty, we are therefore committed to promoting strategies, opportunities, policies and procedures that will help us:

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation;
  • remove or minimise disadvantages;
  • take steps to meet different needs;
  • encourage participation when it is disproportionately low;
  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it; and
  • foster good relations across all protected characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
