Pay scales for teachers and leaders in England and Wales from September 2019

The new teacher and school leadership pay rates for 2019-20 have been confirmed by the Department for Education.

In July, the DfE announced pay rises of 2.75 per cent for teachers on all pay grades.

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 2019.
