What are the arrangements for pay progression in schools and academies?

Year Published: 2015

From September 2014, any salary progression is determined by the outcome of your performance appraisal. There is no longer any right to automatic pay progression for teachers.

Academies do not have to use the nationally agreed salary scales.

If you return to work in a maintained school there is no requirement for the school to honour either your pay in the academy or in any previous maintained school. You and the school will need to negotiate your starting salary.

Teachers who have been paid on the upper pay scale and who return to the maintained sector can be placed on the upper pay scale at their new school but this is at the school’s discretion.

There are no national support staff pay scales, so support staff need to check salary entitlement with a new employer.
