The School Teachers’ Review Body (STRB) recommended that no pay uplift be applied to the maximum values on the Leadership Group Pay Range (LGPR) or to maximum values on any of the eight head teacher group pay ranges in 2015.

This restriction was applied to the maximum of each the eight head teacher group pay ranges only. It does not apply where a head/deputy/assistant head teacher is not earning the maximum on a head teacher group pay range, but is placed on one of the corresponding points on the LGPR - L18, L21, L24, L27, L31, L35 or L39, which have all increased by 1% in each year between 2014 and 2017, by 1.5% in 2018, by 2.75% in 2019, and by 2.75% in 2020.

The NASUWT salary scales are completely consistent with the DfE's national advisory pay points.
