Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 27 March 2015, amends the Education (2015 School Staffing) Order 2014 (the principal order). Changes are made to the principal order to recognise 3 new community of schools roles for teachers (including principals). A community of schools is a group of schools that the Minister has approved as a community of schools. The new roles are the roles of Community of Schools Leadership, Community of Schools Teacher (Across Community), and Community of Schools Teacher (Within School).

Clause 4 inserts 2 new definitions into clause 6.

Clause 5 inserts a new clause 19A, which limits the numbers permitted for each of the 3 types of community of schools roles for each community. The limits are set out in new clause 19A(3), (4), and (5). Clause 19A prevents a board of a school that is a member of a community of schools from employing a teacher with a community of schools role if the result is to exceed those limits for that community. The numbers of teachers who may have these roles in each community of schools are limited to,—

  • unless the Secretary agrees otherwise, 1 person only in the role of Community of Schools Leadership who is a principal of a school in the community under new clause 19A(3):

  • not more than the number of teachers in the role of Community of Schools Teacher (Across Community) calculated under new clause 19A(4):

  • not more than the number of teachers in the role of Community of Schools Teacher (Within School) calculated under new clause 19A(5).

Clause 6 amends clause 28 to provide for 2 new allowances in the form of additional FTTEs to be included (where applicable) in a school’s total regular staffing allowance.

Clause 7 inserts new clauses 47A and 47B, which describe how to calculate the 2 new allowances. Under new clause 47A, schools that employ a teacher who has a community of schools role will receive a release time allowance. The amount of the allowance varies according to which community of schools role is being compensated for. Under new clause 47B, all schools that are members of a community of schools will receive an inquiry time allowance. The calculation for this allowance differs depending upon whether a school has a formula-generated staffing allowance of less than 10 FTTEs or of 10 or more FTTEs.

The order makes 2 changes to the principal order that are unrelated to the community of schools roles. Clause 8 amends clause 84 to increase the maximum number of resource teachers: vision that are available under that clause from 50 to 52.

Clause 9 replaces Schedule 8 of the principal order, which relates to entitlement staffing for regional hospital and health schools. Entitlement staffing and salary units are increased as follows:

  • for Central Regional Health School, the entitlement staffing is increased from 21.20 to 22.20 and its salary units are increased from 24 to 25:

  • for Northern Health School, the entitlement staffing is increased from 59.80 to 66.90 and its salary units are increased from 74 to 83:

  • for Southern Regional Health School, the entitlement staffing is increased from 21.60 to 24.40 and its salary units are increased from 25 to 28.
