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. 236 employees were eligible for inclusion in the pay gap data for 5 April 2019. 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. The UK’s overall average gender pay gap is 17.3% in 2019, down from 17.8% in 2018.
Commentary on the Data
114 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.
The mean and median gender pay gaps have decreased since the April 2018 report in favour of men. Although there are many changes within the staff body and salary levels during the reporting period, a higher number of men joining the school during the year is a key contributor to the increase. Retiring teachers are often at the top of the teachers’ pay spine.
No staff received bonus payments in the reporting period.
