‘Work 9 – Paid 10’ Staff Well-being Scheme


From September 2024, we will be implementing a 9-day working fortnight for all staff. The premise is simple, staff will work nine days but be paid for ten, using the tenth day to ‘reset’, and thus giving them the opportunity to manage their work-life balance more effectively.


 We are committed to the well-being and mental health of our staff and understand the pressures that working in education can place on individuals. We are always looking for ways to improve working conditions and offer our staff  incentives that are not always available in education.
