Schools and Academies

If you’re a school that has become or is thinking about becoming an academy it is important that you contact us as soon as possible as we will need to ask our actuary to calculate your contribution rate on your new status before your conversion date. Please note that actuarial and LPFA staffing costs will be incurred as part of this process.

LPFA are currently treating all schools converting to academy status as individual employers, and removing them from the pooling arrangement they are currently part of. We are however considering DCLG guidance, and may create an 'Academies Pool' as part of the 2013 valuation. Discussions with our actuary are ongoing in relation to this.

Any queries regarding academies should be directed towards the Head of Employer Risk Services, Tony Williams on 0207 369 6078.

Academies

 

DCLG have released FAQs aimed at helping pensions administrators and Academy practitioners to better understand the relationship between the LGPS and Academies.
