Dear Amethyst Academies Trust,
With some staff likely to be furloughed due to coronavirus.
What will happen to staff salaries and benefits? Are they likely to get their full pay or will they get the new grant which the Chancellor has set out?
Have you done an estimate of how many staff this is likely to impact?
If you do offer more generous pay than the Chancellor has announced how often will this be reviewed?
What is your recruitment policy in regards to this? As some staff maybe hired but will not be able to perform their job due to the pandemic.
Dear Mr Hai
The priority for Amethyst Academies Trust is to continue to
provide support to our students and staff whether they are studying at
home or being looked after in our academies as children of key workers
or vulnerable children.
We have made no plans to furlough staff and consider it very unlikely
that we will as our schools continue to operate and provide an education
to our students throughout this period – Staff who are not supervising in
our learning base, are teaching from home, via remote teaching platforms,
and are available to support students with their remote learning during
school hours. Support Staff and Central Services staff are continuing to
work to ensure our academies and Trust operate as normal.
Recruitment is continuing as normal, albeit selection is to be carried out
by virtual interviews.
