Your school will have their own pay scales for qualified teachers. Pay increases will always be linked to performance, not length of service, and will be reviewed every year.”

Teacherd who are able to satisfactorily demonstrate excellence against all of the teacher standards, can be put onto the upper remuneration range . This is for teachers who make a sustained and substantial contribution to their school.
