    Do Primary schools have Network Managers?

    Hi

    Just wondering if primary schools have network manager? Anyone out there working full time in a primary school? Do you think more permanent IT staff will be allocated to primary schools?

    Thanks

    Yep me!

    Although a group of schools clubbed together to employ me.

    I would expect more primary schools to start doing this as ICT demands increase. We could already do with more people.

    Hi

    Which school do you cover then? You in the city or leicestershire? how many schools do you cover and how do you allocate your time to them?

    Are you employed by the school or you work for yourself?

    Round here, the primaries tend to club together to share a NM.
    However the independents, employ their own... full time in the bigger prep schools.

    I cover the three primaries in Braunstone Town (county).

    I am employed by the schools and split my time equally between the three.

    Where in Leics are you?

    I am in leicester city, employed by the school itself! If you don't mind me asking what is the pay band where you are? Do you find you get paid more in leicester city than leicestershire? Or is it the same?

    Round here, most primary or middle schools have their own techie - a sore point at the moment as research shows that they vary from full-time down to 20 hours a week - except of course me on a measly 10 hours.
    Most schools get help if required from the high school in the pyramid

    I'm a network manager at one primary school, they got me all to themselves. I'm pro rata though...

    If you are pro rota what is your percentage worked out on a full time salary? I am on 87% of a full time salary, grade 9 i think.

    What are you on?

    As the word "Manager" would mean that I should be on a higher pay scale I am not called that, in fact all the manage words were taken out of my job description. However, that is what I do in one Primary School, 29 hours a week, term time only (though I also work some weeks in summer for which I claim).

    It's quite interesting you say that. I'm sure my job title on my contract says Network Manager/IT Technician (wanna double check now). But i dont consider myself to be on NM wage, even if i was full time. Wondering what single status is going to say about that....
