Teaching staff joining bonus

The request was successful.

Dear Lion Academy Trust,

I should like to request the following information: the number of teaching staff that are taken on, each year, to the Trust between 15 June and 1 August each year and receive salary payments over the August period. Please also provide a breakdown of the cost to the Trust of these staff in terms of Salary/NI/Pension. Please provide this for each year from 2012.

Additionally, please provide a breakdown of the cost per year of any additional recruitment/joining bonus paid to new teaching staff to the trust.

I should receive these in electronic format at this email address.

It would be helpful if you were to provide any brief notes which might be necessary to understand the context of the information provided, although I recognise that you are not obliged to do this. If for any reason you feel this request is unclear, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you are not the appropriate authority for this request, or for part of it, please let me know as soon as is convenient.

If the information requested contains sections of confidential information, please blank out or remove these sections, and mark clearly that they have been removed.
Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,


Christopher Stark, Lion Academy Trust
