This advice concerns head teachers’ pay in maintained schools with delegated budgets, where the governing body is the relevant body; and also those entitled under their contract(s) of employment to be paid as head teachers, including members employed in outdoor education centres, pupil referral units and local authority (LA) central services, where the LA is the relevant body.
The ‘relevant body’ in a school with a delegated budget is the governing body. In most other circumstances, it’s the LA.
This guidance is based on the final version of the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document (STPCD) 2018.
