Gender Pay Gap Report 2019


We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation. The snapshot date is 5 April 2018 and we are required to report within one year of this date.

We can use these results to assess:

  • the levels of gender equality in our workplace
  • the balance of male and female employees at different levels
  • how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded


The results of the statutory calculations are shown below

Hourly Rate

Women’s hourly rate is

Mean 17.5%                                                    Median 14.3%

Pay Quartiles

How many men and women are in each quartile of the employer’s payroll

Top Quartile

Men 41%                                                         Women 59%

Upper Middle Quartile

Men 28%                                                         Women 72%

Lower Middle Quartile

Men 22%                                                         Women 78%

Lower Quartile

Men 16%                                                         Women 84%


The Great North Wood Education Trust workforce is 74% women and 26% men. This means in broad terms the split between men and women in the upper middle and lower middle quartiles are representative of the workforce. Women are over represented in the lower quartile and underrepresented in the top quartile.

The Gender Pay Gap reporting is a high level, non-adjusted indicator of men and women’s earnings which is affected by workforce distribution and workforce make-up.

We strive to ensure that women are represented proportionally in each pay quartile and to eliminate any gender pay gaps. We are considering how we can identify leadership talent, particularly as there is a high proportion of women in the upper middle quartile.
