Gender Pay Gap

Tudhoe Learning Trust is proud to be a diverse and equitable working and learning environment creating opportunity for all.  We have a range of policies and procedures that underpin our culture of practice that ensures no individual or group is disadvantaged whether they work for us, learn with us or visit us.

Organisations employing more than 250 people are required by law to publish their gender pay gap.  Gender pay gap is the difference between average male hourly rate of pay and average female hourly rates of pay shown as a percentage.  The Trust does not currently employ more than 250 staff and as such we are not required to report on this element at this time.

However, we do have a formal pay structure for teaching and non-teaching staff.  We do not pay bonuses or benefits in kind.  We are confident that men and women are paid fairly and equally for equivalent work.  For more information about our gender pay gap please contact us on

Trade Union Representatives

South Hetton Primary is obligated to report certain information about Trade Union Representatives and Tudhoe Learning Trust is obligated to report certain information about Trade Union Representatives and their activity within the Trade Union (Facility Time Publication Requirements) Regulations 2017, which took effect from 1 April 2017.  These regulations were laid following the enactment of the Trade Union Act 2016.

We are required to report and publish information about:
• the number of trade union representatives in our organisation
• the time and percentage of hours spent on paid TU activity 
• the amount spent on TU activity
• the percentage of paid time spent on TU activities

Tudhoe Learning Trust works hard to maintain a supportive and inclusive working environment within which employees are able to be part of a Trade Union and to take part in its activities if they wish.

The Trust currently employs 2 trade union representatives and during the academic year 2022-2023, the employees spent 26 hours (paid leave) on trade union activity at a total cost of £162.29.  The percentage of time spent on trade union activity equates to 0.02% in terms of the total pay bill cost.
