S2SS Charging Policy 2019-2020

The cost to the supported school will be calculated on a daily rate or pro rata for half days. The time commitment will be set out in the deployment agreement. The rate of support has been agreed across Teaching Schools in our region and is as follows:

£382.50 per day


£550 per day

As shown in the above table, a brokerage fee will be factored into each transaction. The fee will be used to cover the costs incurred by Fairfields TSA of administration, monitoring evaluation and reporting to NCTL.

Fairfields TSA is part of Fairfields School, Northampton. All financial transactions relating to SLEs will pass through the finance department at Fairfields School, who will raise invoices to the supported schools for the total cost. In turn, SLEs will need to ensure that their base school raises an invoice to Fairfields TSA to cover the costs, as defined in the deployment agreement, incurred by the absence of the SLE.


  1. The scope of the deployment is set out in the Deployment Agreement, which includes the number of contracted days.
  2. The Teaching School will invoice the client school for the full cost as soon as the Deployment Agreement document has been signed.  Payment must be made in advance, within 28 days of the invoice.
  3. It is the responsibility of the home school to invoice the Teaching School within 28 days of the first visit of the LLE/NLE/SLE.
  4. The Teaching School will reimburse the home school for the full cost of the deployment within 28 days of the invoice date.
