April 2019 Support Staff Pay Scales update

April 2019 Support Staff Pay Scales

This blog demonstrates how SBS Online users can apply the April 2019 Support Staff Pay Scales migration to their Custom Scales.

With the complete restructure of Support Scales that’s taking place as of 1st April 2019, we have been thinking about the best way for SBS Online users to implement this change in their budget management software Custom Support Scales.

We believe the best way to implement these changes to your budget in SBS Online will be to import new April 2019 Support Staff Pay Scales and convert all your Support Scale contracts to this new structure as of the 1st April 2019.

This enables schools to have the correct structure moving forward, with your contracts on the scales which will be in line with your payroll and your MIS system.

We have released a step-by-step guide on how to complete this process – click here to download.

If you have any questions, please contact the Service Desk on 0345 222 1551 – Option 8, or email us as sbsonline@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk.
