    I'd expect that to mean 28th September. Contact school HR and ask them to confirm that. Only they can give a definitive answer to your question.

    Agree with @Rott Weiler - most likely to be end of Sept. have you been asked to supply bank details yet? That would provide a good opportunity to ask HR when your first payment date will be. I do know (years ago admittedly) some schools made the first payment by cheque if they couldn't guarantee getting bank details sorted in time for their payroll cut off date (likely to be no later than middle of the month, to allow them to get everything sorted for salaries to be paid at the end)

    Usually would be the 28th September for new starters that start in September, but check your contract.

    I have worked in many places with similar conditions - they are standard for monthly paid staff. Pay for a month is done shortly before the end of the month. Provided that your banking details are with the school in plenty of time, I think you can be pretty sure that you will get paid on September 28. If you haven't given your bank details yet, make sure you do so promptly when asked.

    Congratulation on the job, BTW. Hope it goes well.
