Gender Pay Gap Reporting

St Paul’s Girls’ School employs over 250 people under the gender pay gap reporting definition and is therefore required to comply with the statutory regulations and publish information about its gender pay gap. 213 employees were eligible for inclusion in the pay gap data for 5 April 2017.

The data was calculated in accordance with the statutory guidelines. A negative gender pay gap means that women were paid more than men at the reporting date.

Commentary on the Data

110 of the eligible employees are teaching staff at the school. They are all paid on an incremental pay spine according to experience. Payments are also made for additional responsibilities such as being head of an academic department. Salaries for other staff are determined in accordance with experience and market rates.

Five staff received bonus payments in the reporting period. Occasional bonuses are paid for work contributions over and above the normal expectations of the role and exceptional performance over a significant period.
