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).
