2020 Support and Teachers’ Pay Scales

This blog refers to SBS Budgets, our budget management software accessed anywhere via SBS Online.

Support and Teachers' Pay

The government have confirmed the Support and Teachers’ Pay Awards for 2020.

Support

The Support Scales for April 2020 have been confirmed as a flat 2.75% inflation compared to the 2019 Support Pay Scales. The pay for Support Staff will be backdated to 1st April 2020.

More information can be found here.


Teachers

The Teacher Scales for September 2020 have been confirmed. The Main range for Teachers inflation varies, with M1 having a 5.50% inflation, compared to the 2.75% on M6. All other ranges have a 2.75% inflationary increase.

The full list of the new scale values with their inflation percentage can be found here.


SBS Budgets Customers

Both these tables are now available within SBS Budgets. Instructions on how to apply these scales can be found on your dashboard.

Note: Please ensure you remove any inflation once the official scales are applied to your budget.

If you were not budgeting for 2.75% inflation for your Support Staff, when you apply your scales, you may want to go back through your Payroll Reconciliations and adjust your Carry Forward value to ensure that you can accurately monitor the backdated pay. Alternatively, you can add a note to September’s Payroll explaining that the variance is due to under budgeting.

You may want to fix your budget and apply these scales to a new working budget to produce comparison reports on the impact of these increases on your budget.


If you have any questions, please contact the SBS Online Service Desk on 0345 222 1551 • Option 8, or email sbsonline@schoolbusinessservices.co.uk.
