I was on £20k when I worked in the County as a Site Manager of a 700 pupil High School. I have moved into the City with a 1.5 mile further commute. I am now on £27k in a Primary with 470 pupils.

There was a job advertised on here a few weeks back for an outer London borough (inner London are normally the boroughs around the city of London .outer London borough are the ones that are next to these . Example Greenwich is inner Bexley is outer )
It was paying around £20000, this was around £5500 less than an Essex school that borders an outer London school .
It was surprising as normally those jobs pay more than Essex.
I think with academy's taking over they are paying less . I also think they will start recruiting caretaker's on lower pay & not employ site managers .
Most schools managed with caretaker's doing the work .
Take my drum to England, hang it by the shore,And strike it when your powder's running low;If the Dons sight Devon, I'll quit the port of heaven,& drum them up the channel as we drummed them long ago

Here in Sheffield there are 4 tiers starting at Caretaker, Building Supervisor, Buildings Officer & Buildings Manager. I'm in a 225 pupil infant school as Buildings Officer & in my 12th year. Annual salary is 24,657 so I'm at the top of my pay scale. I get the school house at £230 per month so all things considered I don't do too bad even compared to some jobs I see advertised around London. I must say I get respect from all the staff, they see me as part of the team & give me a bottle of rum at Summer break & December break as a thank you.
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

I'm pretty sure that reflects the multitude of responsibilities that you have on your plate on a daily basis, esp if you have a team under you, you are more a manager than supervisor. Here, I am called a Premises Manager but you might just as well call me a glorified janitor with Caretaker duties.

£21.5K here, top scale. Outer London area.

All I can say to those of you who are on good salaries is beware, as I took in a school delivery at 7am this morning (6am start) and the driver was so pleased to see me and take delivery= 39 parcels as I was the first school around my area open as he had attempted to deliver at 2 other schools before me and no one was on site, I informed him those 2 schools had recently reduced their c.t hours due to cutbacks to save money, he replied that he had noticed this recently and is expected just not to make deliveries but put parcels in the appropriate places in and around the school!! so tread carefully out there you high earners. I am just a basic c.t on a lowly salary, but I get by as I enjoy watching others run around like headless chickens and just do my job that I am paid to do = peanuts and monkeys!!!! have a good day, I know I will [Like.png]
