Schools Need Us

Key campaign messages

  • School Administrative Support SAS Staff play a vital role in the day-to-day running of our schools.
  • We are committed to their work and to the education of every child under their care.
  • But their contribution is not recognised by the government
    • Their pay rates do not reflect the value of the work they perform
    • They face barriers to securing permanent employment
    • They routinely perform higher duties without adequate training

Through the PSA’s Schools Need Us campaign we are demanding a better deal through:

  • A major test case to ensure wages are not undervalued in order to secure pay increases
  • Creating and enforcing permanency processes
  • Ensuring all SAS Staff have pathways to career progression through paid, recognised training

By being part of the PSA all SAS Staff can demand respect and recognition for their contribution.
