Teacher pay ranges

Teacher pay ranges 2023/24

Each school has the option to set its own pay points within each of the ranges. Most schools in Hertfordshire are believed to follow these reference points, however it should be noted they do not have to. Greater flexibility was introduced into the pay arrangements for schoolteachers in 2014 so it is important to recognise that not all employers will use the same values.

The following ranges and pay reference points reflect the latest values for consideration from 01 September 2023 onwards connected to the School Teachers Pay and Conditions Document.

All values have been included across the country; therefore, care will need to be taken to use the correct value applicable to each school or setting. Some academy trusts will have schools that cover several of these areas. In Hertfordshire there is a mixture of Fringe and Rest of England rates, the values for which are shown in the first two columns.

At the end of this page we have provided guidance on how to calculate an hourly or pro rata rate of pay from these annual figures.

Please note, points 18*, 21*, 24*, 27*, 31*, 35*, 39* and 43 on the Leadership Pay Range are the salary figures for head teachers at, or moving to, the top of the school group ranges only. These different figures are a legacy of the 2015 STPCD which provided for no uplift to the maxima of the eight head teacher group ranges.

How to calculate an hourly rate of pay

The hourly rate of pay is based on the full-time annual salary for the post divided by 52.142 weeks per year, then divided by 37 hours per week (non-teaching staff) or 32.5 hours per week (teaching staff).

The daily rate is based on the full-time annual salary divided by 365 (days per year).

How to calculate pro-rata rate of pay from an annual salary figure

Payment of salary and allowances is pro-rata for part-time employees and is calculated by dividing the full time salary by eother 37 or 32.5 (full-time hours) and 52.142 (full-time working weeks) then multiplying by the number of your working hours per week and paid weeks.

You can use our handy pro rata salary calculator to help you.
