I live in a two bedroom on site next to the nursery and KS1 building. The only thing is we are moving down to a two form and who knows what is going to happen to the building once we leave it. High rise flats maybe!? I think I'll resign if that happens.

I know there are a lot of cons to this but I would love to live on site, I'm in london private renting a 2 bedroom at £1250 a month just rent so would snap up a job if it came with the house.

You must earn well to be able to afford that.
Up to about 3 years ago , LEA caretakers were paying £57 a month in Essex.
Pay reflects low earnings to low rents

Re: Do you live on-site or have a tied house?

I'm on 30k a year, so I do consider myself to be very lucky, I've been doing this job nearly 5 years now and it's my first caretaker job, but the cost of living in london is very high. I do find the wages a funny thing though in our role, as the same role and job title of mine in other parts of london or just outside are advertised anything between 18k-23k.

Re: Do you live on-site or have a tied house?

I am in a 3 bed school bungalow.
Rent in Surrey is 7% of wage. I pay £150/month or thereabouts.

We are now academy, but as my contract was TUPEd the rent stayed the same........For the time being at least!
