A friend works in a school in Yorkshire and told me that without any managemtn points a primary school teacher at the top of their scale would earn 28K. Is this right? Are salaries set nationally for teachers or by local government or the school themselves? I thought it sounded like a lot, I thought it was more like 24K without management points.

there you go

In london and outer london you get more

basically, at the moment there is the basic pay scale which you are on for about 7-8 years then you apply to go on the upper pay scale (cross the 'threshold') which takes you to a slightly higher level of pay

management points are a spearate issue though I understand that something is changing in april ( but am on maternity leave so dont know the latest,,,,)

I'm secondary but on same pay scale.

If you do not apply to go through the threshold (which requires paper work, etc. but no management responsibilities needed) then the current highest salary point is £27,123.

Threshold takes you on further than this, as would management points.

This is what salary I am (pro rata) as I haven't bothered applying for the threshold (as intended leaving for a while).

Management Allowances will be replace by 2 Teaching and Learning Responsibility Allowances (TLR2 being the lowest and TLR1 the highest). My understanding of this is that the school can decide how much to pay a teacher within a given range. I'm sure I've read somewhere that schools will no longer be able to make recruitment and retention payments to teachers.
