As well as paying your agreed day rate, the school will pay a 16.48% contribution towards your pension.  So if your day rate is £100 and you have not opted out of TPS, the school will pay an additional £16.48 into your pension scheme.  

In addition, you need to make a contribution to TPS, the amount of which varies depending on how much you earn - the school will calculate this amount for  you and it is deducted at source (PAYE). The lowest amount is currently 7.4%.
