Hi, in regard to the pay of primary teachers on the main pay scale, the post threshold and various leadership roles etc. is the values stated in the tables before or after tax/repayments? For example, main pay scale point 6 (outside of London and the fringe areas) corresponds to £31,552 yearly - is that after tax? I found a teaching tax calculator which calculated that on point 6 I would be paying back £10,553 in repayments/tax/pension etcetera - which meant that the net salary I would be receiving would be just £20,999 a year? Upper scale 3 - £36,755 yearly - after input into the calculator the net profit would be £23957.52? Headteacher - Level 14 - £51664 - after input into the tax/repayment calculator the net profit would be £32,118.66? Have I got this wrong, I've never had to pay tax before so was unsure of the actual salary of a teacher? I find it hard to believe that a headteacher would be on just £32,118 after tax? Thank you.
