    After interviewing for a job a state school in Kent, they mentioned in interview that pay points are different to the last council I worked in, with the pay point I requested being ~£400/annum less than the pay point advice in NASUWT guidelines. Is this normal?

    Schools set their own pay policies and pay points. So yes there are differences. And you therefore must negotiate when offered a job.

    And of course union guidelines cannot bind the employer.

    When STPCD conditions apply, the only rules the school has to follow are about the maximum and minimum pay. That is why it is best to talk in money terms when negotiating pay.
