Management staffing

Calculate the management staffing component of your school’s entitlement staffing.

About management staffing

Management staffing is a component of your school’s entitlement staffing.

Management staffing comprises:

  • a roll-generated component, and 
  • base management staffing — for secondary, area and composite schools — or 
  • professional leadership staffing — for primary, intermediate, restricted composite and special schools.

How we calculate management staffing

To calculate management staffing we add base management or professional leadership staffing to your roll-generated management staffing, and then round down to one decimal place.

Weighted roll for management staffing

To calculate management staffing we use a weighted roll based on year level.

Roll weighting by year level

Year level

Roll weighting

1-3 4.0
4-8 3.5
Technology education (7-8) 0.5
9-10 7.0
11  9.0
12 15.0
13+ 16.0

Using the relevant weighting from the table above, we calculate your school's weighted roll as:

weighted roll = sum of (roll weighting x year level roll).

Your management staffing is then calculated using the formula:

management staffing = (0.0003 x weighted roll) + (0.017 x square root of weighted roll).

How we allocate base management and professional leadership staffing

Base management staffing and professional leadership staffing is allocated based on the total roll of your school. This staffing is allocated with a time allowance (full-time teacher equivalents (FTTEs).

Base management staffing is for secondary, area and composite schools. Professional leadership staffing is for primary, intermediate, restricted composite and special schools.
