School Employees' Salary Information

We are required to publish how many school employees have a gross annual salary of £100,000 or more in increments of £10,000. 

We can confirm that no school employee has a gross annual salary equal to or greater than £100,000.  

School Financial Benchmarking 

The school uses the Department for Education’s (DfE’s) Schools Financial Benchmarking website to find similar schools and then compares their per-pupil revenue and expenditure data against spending at St James. This allows the school to identify areas where spending is comparatively high or low. It is important to also understand the story behind the data and to consider it in context.

The Headteacher and Business Manager work closely with the Chair of the Resources Committee when considering financial decisions and the Leadership Team are also consulted when developing the systems and processes the school has in place to help ensure spending is efficient and results in the best outcomes for our pupils.
