Hi everyone! I recently started working at a primary academy, as a 'full-time' HLTA (Pay scale F1). My contract states that the salary is 14880 and that I am being paid for 25 hrs a week (9 - 3, minus lunch hour). I was shocked yesterday to see that my 1st monthly payment was a mere 456 quid! Surely this cannot be right?! I was expecting it to be somewhere around the 900/1000 mark? There are lots of further formulae in the contract for calculating hourly pay etc...but unfortanately, I don't have Steven Hawking sat next to me to explain them all. I would be extremely grateful if anyone in a similar sort of role to mine, could let me know whether this is reasonable...because if it is, then I would be far better off at home on Jobseekers Allowance, looking after my little girl! Cheers.
