Pay and Benefits


The minimum starting salary for an NQT may vary across the county as some schools may recognise other work experience and offer a higher starting point on the main salary scale. Some schools may choose to pay salaries from 1st August.

Schools can also offer a recruitment and retention allowance and the amount is at the discretion of the school.

Other benefits available can include;

  • advice on childcare provision
  • some schools have workplace nurseries
  • information provided about housing
  • flexible benefits, such as BUPA membership, health screening, dental care, HSA, and child care vouchers

(Staff can elect to purchase these benefits at a competitive rate through payroll.)
