Our Living Wage commitment ensures that every member of staff receives at least, if not more than, an hourly rate of £9.30.
This rate is significantly higher than the government minimum wage for over 25s, which currently stands at £8.21 per hour.
The real Living Wage is the only rate calculated according to the costs of living. It provides a voluntary benchmark for employers who wish to ensure their staff earn a wage they can live on, not just the government minimum. Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 160,000 people.
The Quest School is based in the South East, a region where 17% of all jobs pay less than the real Living Wage – around 635,000 jobs.
We have committed to pay the real Living Wage, or above, to show that we value our staff, and the hard work they do every day, for our pupils
We have registered to take part in Safer Internet Day 2020. Although online safety is embedded into our curriculum, this is a national day where online safety is discussed and reinforced with pupils across the UK. Quest participate in this every year.
A new link on our website has been added under the parent- E- Safety tab to direct parents to current online safety tips about keeping safe online. https://questschool.co.uk/info-for-parents/e-safety/
The stage is set for our Christmas Play! We are looking forward to seeing everyone later and wish our shining stars good luck!
The final count is in! We raised £161 for Children in Need. Thank you again to everyone for your generous donations!
Today, we remembered those who have lost their lives for us fighting for our country in wars. We had a two minute silence at 11am. The pupils have made a remembrance board in honour of this. #lestweforget.
