Joint union advice on pay scales for 2021/2022

School teachers' and l​eaders' statutory pay ranges are due to remain the same in England for the academic year 2021/22, as a result of the government's pay freeze. The only exception to this will be for unqualified teachers earning below the pay freeze threshold.

NAHT, along with ASCL, NASUWT, NEU, and Voice have jointly produced recommended pay scale points, covering the advisory pay points in the STPCD as well as the recommended pay points for the leadership pay range. These points are unchanged for 2021/22 other than for points 1-3 for unqualified teachers. 

NAHT remains committed to the principle that the government should fully fund pay uplifts and continues to press the government on this issue.

This joint union document advises on the application of the proposed changes to teacher pay in England, including on adoption of pay scales and individual pay increases. As in previous years, we have developed indicative pay scales to support schools, leaders and teachers in the application of individual pay increases for 2021/22.
