Maintained sector pay scales

Pay scales for teachers working in maintained schools across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales can be viewed from this page.


ATL, along with ASCL, NAHT, NUT, UCAC and Voice, have produced a joint advice which sets out pay scales for 2016-17 which have been revised in line with the recommended increases in teachers' pay ranges.

Full details of the statutory arrangements for teachers' salaries can be found in the School Teachers' Pay and Conditions Document 2016 and associated guidance. 

Part-time teachers in maintained schools will be paid according to the same scales but should view ATL's advice on how part-time payments are calculated.

If you are a supply teacher you may also be paid according to the scales below, and should view ATL's advice on pay for supply teachers.
