Nursery Nurses

In my maintained Nursery I have two Nursery Nurses who are salaried. In school the teaching assistants are paid hourly. My new head teacher is finding it difficult to understand why the NNEBs have a different contract. I have explained that their contracts were negotiated with the LEA by the unions but she needs more information. Any ideas how I can justify/explain this further?

I do remember there being a general issue about this or something similar but I cant remember the details but I think there will also be a difference in terms and conditions and that will account for the different pay structure. Does you head want to pay the NNs less or the LSAs more???

I am a nursery nurse working in school and we are on a hourly rate. I think its about £16,000 a year pro rata this breaks down to about £9 an hour .

some of our wage is kept back each month so we are paid a wage in the holidays.

We do not get a retainer in the six weeks holiday so its unpaid leave.

We also are contracted to go into school for the 5 training days.

Which local authority are you in.

Also the nursery nurses are qualified and have had to have at least two years training, .

I have also worked as a teaching assistant and as such do not have to have any out of house training.

This could be reflective in the wages.
