Paul Whiteman, general secretary of schools leaders’ union NAHT, said: “This survey provides a welcome new insight into a critical part of the education workforce, especially in the absence of any official data.
“It is really positive to see school business leaders increasingly being recognised as important members of senior leadership teams. NAHT believes this should be the norm in every school. School business leaders play a critical role in the long-term strategic planning and day-to-day running of a school. It is therefore imperative that their status is recognised.
“But while we increasingly recognise the value SBLs bring to the education system, too often their pay does not reflect that value. SBLs perform a central leadership role and should be paid on a scale equivalent to other school leaders. That’s why earlier this week, in our evidence submission to the School Teachers’ Review Body, NAHT again made the case for a national pay framework that covers all roles.”
