All 2009 teacher pay scales in full

School leaders are paid on the 43-point leadership spine. From September 2009 the pay scales range from £36,618 to £102,7344 (£43,538 to £109,658 in inner London). Heads’ pay is normally related to school group size, but governing bodies can pay more where necessary to recruit and retain head teachers in challenging schools.

Deputies and assistant heads are paid on a five point range below that of the head teacher and above the pay of the highest paid classroom teacher.

Members of the leadership group all receive an increase when the pay scales are up-rated, but may also be awarded one or two pay points in September each year, provided their performance is of high quality.
