This subtopic focusses on pay and allowances as applicable to school teachers in England who are covered by the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD). The STPCD applies automatically in maintained schools but may also be recognised on a discretionary basis in academies and other independent settings.
In our guidance and information section you can download current pay and allowance ranges plus guides on teachers' allowances (including in residential special schools), leadership pay, devising and operating a performance-related pay scheme and accessing the upper pay range. Our templates and tools include pay statements you can adapt for your use, alongside resources to support upper pay range applications and calculators for headteachers' pay and part-time teachers.
Our FAQs include answers to some commonly-asked questions around teachers' pay and allowances.
A note on sixth form colleges: conditions relating to teachers' pay in publicly-funded sixth form colleges are governed by the NJC Conditions of Service Handbook ('Red Book') rather than the STPCD.
