Voluntary Grammar schools submit monthly returns to the Department of Education’s Teachers Pensions Team detailing employee and employer scheme contributions as well as service details for all substitute teachers. Substitute teachers working in a Voluntary Grammar school are paid directly by the school and not the DE Teachers Pay Team.
It is important that all day/hours worked by substitute teachers are signed off by schools on the NISTR system to ensure payment of salary. Booking alone does not ensure that a temporary teachers' salary payment is processed. Work signed off after a payroll deadline will be processed on the next available pay date.
