Pay scales for teachers and leaders in England from September 2020

The new teacher and school leadership pay rates for 2020-21 have been confirmed by the Department for Education.

In July, the DfE announced salaries for new teachers would rise by 5.5 per cent this year year, with the upper and lower boundaries of the pay ranges for all other teachers to rise by 2.75 per cent

While local authority-maintained schools are required to follow these pay scales, academies and free schools are allowed to set their own scales.

Here are the new pay rates, effective from September 1 2020. Please note that for the first time from this year, these apply only to England, rather than to England and Wales.
