Historically, the School's Finance Team have provided guidance around the Site Service Officer (SSO) Rent. We no longer provide this information as it is the school's governing body who will make any decisions around the rent chargeable.

Take a look at this guide to assist with the allowance percentages.

We would recommend using the September guidance released in October, as this is used for the March budget setting process.

The school should review their SSO rent annually. Following the rent review, schools will be required to notify the SSO in writing of their rent level and monthly pay deduction.

Schools will also need to notify Employment Services of the new amount to be deducted from the SSO salary. This can be done by emailing payroll.forms@coventry.gov.uk with the employee name, new amount and date of the change. The normal monthly payroll deadlines will apply.
