2. This pay scale should be read in conjunction with part 2 - section 1: Pay structure (England)

3. In year 2020/21, additional monthly consolidated cash payments will be paid to these points in bands 8 and 9. See table 10(b) - One off consolidated cash payments to specific points in Bands 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d and 9 for 2020/21.

4. Existing staff will retain their existing incremental date (pay step date) throughout transition. On their pay step date it is expected that all staff will move to the next pay point reflecting their additional complete year of experience (if they have not already benefited from deletion of a pay point). Where employers have arrangements in place as a result of the 2013 changes, progression can be withheld where staff are not meeting the required standards.

From 1 April 2018


5. From 1 April 2018, points will be removed from the bottom of the pay band in order to start the process of removing the overlaps between bands. For 2018/19 the bottom overlap point is removed from each band, the exception being band 2 where the bottom three points have been removed. The restructuring of band 1 is complete from 1 April 2018.

6. Band 1 will close to new starters from 1 December 2018.


7. Further substantive pay points are removed from the pay structure on 1 April 2019 and 1 April 2020.

8. A minimum rate of £17,460 is introduced from 1 April 2018.

9. From 1 April 2018 the top pay points in band 2 - 8c have been increased by three per cent. The top pay points in bands 8d and 9 have been increased by the monetary value of the increase to band 8c.

10. Where the table shows duplicate values within the same pay band, this indicates that pay points have been removed.

12. The top pay point in band 2-8c will be increased by 1.7 per cent. The top pay points in bands 8d and 9 will be increased by the monetary value of the increase to band 8c.

13. Where the table shows duplicate values within the same pay band, this indicates that pay points have been removed.

14. Staff employed on the top pay point in their pay band on 31 March 2019 shall receive a one off non-consolidated cash lump sum in their April 2019 pay. The value of this lump sum for staff on bands 2 – 8c will be 1.1 per cent of the value of the top pay point in the individual’s pay band. For staff on bands 8d and 9 the non-consolidated lump sum will be the same value as that given to band 8c.

 

From 1 April 2020

15. From 1 April 2020 further restructuring of the pay bands will take place.

 

16. One further point will be removed from the bottom of band 2, two further points will be removed from the bottom of band 3, and three further points will be removed from the bottom of Band 4. The restructuring of band 2-4 will be complete from 1 April 2020.

 

17. One further point will be removed from the bottom of band 5, 6 and 7. From 1 April 2020 these bands will have 4 unique points, but one point in each band will be a transitional point, which will cease to exist on 1 April 2021. For band 5, 6 and 7, the restructuring of these bands will be complete on 1 April 2021, when the transitional points are removed.

  • £27,416 (Band 5)
