school teachers’ pay and conditions document 2015

1 September 2014

STPCD has been re-issued and comes into effect on 1 September 2015. The key changes for this year are in relation to the pay award for teachers on all scales. This means that schools and academies who are required to follow STPCD or who continue to implement STPCD are going to have to review and update their Pay Policy and decide what they are going to do regarding any increase to the pay of teachers and leaders.  

What has changed?

There are no longer any national reference points (i.e M1-6, UP1-3, ISR, Deputy scale etc) in the any of the pay ranges, although you can choose to have your own points within the ranges if you wish to do so. The minimum and maximum values of the pay ranges have changed from 1 September 2015 as follows:

  • Main Pay Range – 1% increase to the minimum value of the range and 2% increase to the maximum value of the range*
  • Upper Pay, Unqualified Teacher Pay and Leading Practitioner Pay ranges  - 1% increase to both the minimum and maximum values of the ranges*
  • Leadership range – 1% increase to the minimum value in each of the Groups. No change to the maximum value in any of the Groups
  • TLRs and SEN allowances – 1% increase to the minimum and maximum values*

*This does not mean that you should automatically increase the salary or allowance of any teacher currently on the maximum of their range or allowance.
