Hi

Does anyone know where I can find out the Leadership salary range for Head Teacher related to the group size. I have been offered a job in a school with 360 children (KS1 and 2)?
Trying to find out the salary range for a group 2 and/or 3 school really.
Thanks

School group size depends which Key Stage(s) are taught in the school and how many pupils are in each Key Stage.

First of all you allocate a certain number of &lsquo;units&rsquo; to each pupil in the school:

Each pre-key stage one pupil and each pupil at key stage one or two = 7 units
Each pupil at key stage three = 9 units
Each pupil at key stage four = 11 units
Each pupil at key stage five = 13 units

Add up all the units represented by the pupils in the School to find the Total Unit Score.

Then you find the Headteacher Group from the total.

Up to 1,000 = School Group 1
1,001 to 2,200 = School Group 2
2,201 to 3,500 = School Group 3
3,501 to 5,000 = School Group 4
5,001 to 7,500 = School Group 5
7,501 to 11,000 = School Group 6
11,001 to 17,000 = School Group 7
17,001 and over = School Group 8

So, Your school has 360 pupils (all Primary); gives a Total Unit Score of (360 x 7) = 2520
So it would be Group 3.
Now go to a site which gives you the Leadership pay scales, such as http://www.teachernet.gov.uk/docbank/index.cfm?id=12833
There you will find information you want in Section 2 (Part 3) of the STPC document. For a Group 3 school the range is between L11 and L24 (inclusive), but it will in reality depend on what the governors have decided the individual school ISR will be.
All the informatiion you need is in the STPCD.
