Teachers Pay within maintained schools is set within the context of the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document with salaries being within the minimum and maximum of the statutory ranges.
Maintained (local authority) schools (including Foundation, Trust and Aided schools)
Salary for individual teacher posts in maintained schools is a matter for each Governing Body, within the statutory pay range set in the statutory School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions. Schools will advertise the appropriate salary for the post, including allowances, having due regard to the nature of the responsibilities of the post.
Applicants need to be aware that schools are no longer required to honour the same salary that a teacher is currently receiving. You should therefore check the advert details and contact the school for further information if you are unclear on the pay range being offered.
Academy schools are not obliged to apply the provisions of the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document or the provisions of the Conditions of Service for School Teachers (which governs wider terms and conditions, for example, sickness pay and notice periods amongst others). If you are applying to an Academy school, you are advised to check the advert details and contact the academy for further information on the terms and conditions that apply.
