What should be recorded as base pay for the Workforce Census?

As per the DfE:

Base pay must reflect the actual annual salary of a member of staff as at the Census day, based on the hours they actually work.

It should not include any additional payments or allowances.

  • The pay of part-time or term time only staff must not be adjusted upwards to the pay of a full-time equivalent member of staff.
  • It must also not be adjusted downwards for a member of staff that started working part way through the year.

If any elements of the salary are safeguarded these must also be reflected in the base pay.

Top Tip: ScholarPack does not automatically adjust any base pay based on Part time or different hours worked. This amount should be entered in the Base Pay (Salary).
