Please note that this response does not include the leadership roles in Highlands College or the Virtual School.

There are no TLR (Teaching and Learning Responsibility) allowances in Jersey. The local equivalent, SAs (Supplementary Allowances), have been included, awarded for leadership responsibilities, pastoral and/or a curriculum responsibility, or for leading on a specific task.   A teacher can be awarded more than one level of SA.  All SA points have been included as the system does not record what the SA point is held for, i.e., whether they hold leadership responsibilities.    


Table B attached provides a breakdown of “Leaders” employed within Jersey schools by gender and pay grade as at the 22 May 2023.

Please note:

  • The Government of Jersey does not hold data related to staff employed by the Island's non-provided schools. Article 3 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies

  • SA (Supplementary Allowances) replaces TLR (Teaching and Learning Responsibilities) as this term is not used in Jersey.
